Three men arrested in the fatal shooting of the teenage daughter of Olympic sprinter Tyson Gay are expected to appear in court today.
Trinity Gay, 15, was shot in a Lexington, Kentucky, parking lot around 4 a.m. Sunday during an exchange of gunfire between two cars, police said.
She was later declared dead at a nearby hospital, according to police.
The first arrest announced by the Lexington Police on Sunday was 21-year-old Dvonta Middlebrooks. He was in the parking lot and fired multiple shots, according to his arrest citation. He was charged with wanton endangerment and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Chazerae Taylor, 38, and his son, D’markeo Taylor, 19, were also arrested. They were both charged with wanton endangerment, the police said.
The three men are expected to appear in court at 1 p.m. ET today. They have not yet entered a plea.
Olympic sprinter Tyson Gay, who is from Kentucky, has competed in the past three Summer Olympics. According to the AP, his daughter became an accomplished sprinter herself and placed in several events at the Kentucky state championship in May.
Tyson Gay spoke to local Lexington station WLEX about the shooting on Sunday.
“It’s so crazy. I have no idea what happened,” Gay told the station.
