Olympic sprinter Tyson Gay's daughter killed in shooting

ANI  |  London [UK] 

American sprinter Tyson Gay's 15-year-old daughter, Trinity Gay, has been killed in a shooting outside a restaurant in Kentucky.

She died from injuries sustained following a shoot-out in a car park as she was believed to have been caught in the crossfire of a suspected gang attack, reports the CNN.

Confirming her death her father said, "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."

Trinity was transferred to hospital following the shooting and died at the University of Kentucky hospital (UKH).

Gay, 34, told reporters he was very close to his daughter, who was following in his footsteps as a rising track star.

The Lexington police said in a statement that officers attended the car park of a Cook Out restaurant after witnesses reported an exchange of gunfire between two vehicles.

According to the police the fatal shooting happened at around 4 a.m. local time on Sunday before the cars drove away.

Trinity was a bystander and was not in either of the vehicles

Tyson Gay is the USA's 100m record holder and is the second fastest athlete ever, after Usain Bolt.

Gay competed in the last three summer Olympics as part of a team that won a silver medal in the 4 x 100m relay at the 2012 London Games, although he was later stripped of his medal after testing positive for steroids in 2013.
