Olympian Tyson Gay’s 15-year-old daughter has been fatally shot at a Kentucky restaurant. 

Trinity Gay, herself a rising track star, was shot in the neck at Cook Out restaurant in Lexington early Sunday morning.

She was taken to hospital but succumbed to her injuries, according to officials.

Tyson told LEX 18: ‘She didn’t make it. I’m so confused. She was just here last week for fall break. It’s so crazy. I have no idea what happened.’

Lexington Police responded to reports of shooting at the restaurant just before 4am, according to WKYT.

Gunfire was exchanged between two vehicles – described as a dark colored sports car and a gray Dodge Charger.

Trinity, who died shortly before 5am, was not in either of the vehicles and may have been a bystander.

Two persons of interest are being questioned because their vehicle matched the description of the Dodge Charger, WKYT reports.
