Tyson Gay’s daughter dead – Olympic sprinter’s child, 15, killed in restaurant shooting

16 Oct

Police are currently questioning two people after their Dodge Charger matched descriptions of one of the vehicles on the scene.


Trinity, a Lafayette High School athlete, was making a name for herself on the track – according to reports.

Julian Tackett, commissioner of the Kentucky High School Athletics Association, wrote on Twitter: “Shocked to hear of death of Trinity Gay. A life of such potential cut so tragically short. Sympathies to Tyson and entire family.”

Olympic Gold medalist and sprint coach Ato Boldon tweeted: “Condolences to Tyson Gay and his family… 15-year-old girl dies after shooting at Lexington restaurant.”

Tyson Gay was part of the US 100m relay team at the Rio Olympics.

In 2013 he tested positive for a banned substance and was banned from competition for a year.
