Trinity Gay, a high school sprinter and daughter of Olympian Tyson Gay, has died after shots were fired early Sunday morning at a Lexington, Kentucky restaurant.

Two cars were involved in a shootout at the Cook Out restaurant near the University of Kentucky campus. Trinity Gay, 15, who was reportedly not in either car, was hit in the neck and pronounced dead at 4:41 a.m. Sunday. Police are seeking the drivers of the cars based on descriptions.

“She didn’t make it,” Tyson Gay said. “I’m so confused. She was just here last week for fall break. It’s so crazy. I have no idea what happened.”

Trinity Gay was a promising sprinter who was a state champion for her region in the 200m event, and placed fourth in the state at the 100m distance.

Condolences for the Gay family began flowing in on Sunday morning via Twitter and press release. “Our hearts are broken this morning over the loss of Trinity to this tragic and senseless act of violence,” Fayette County (Ky.) Superintendent Manny Caulk said in a statement. “Please join us in keeping the Gay family close in thought and prayer and supporting the students, staff, and families at Lafayette High during this unspeakably difficult time.”
