Trinity Gay, 15, – herself a rising track athlete
– was shot in the neck about 4 am (0800
GMT), police said, according to the Lexington
Herald Leader.
She died in hospital within an hour of being
transported.
Witnesses said Gay was hit during an
exchange of gunfire between two cars,
according to police.
Two people in one of the cars have been
detained for questioning.
Tyson Gay, who holds the US record in the
100m, told local television station WLEX, “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 Gay was a top high school sprinter who
dreamed of competing in the Olympics and
becoming a surgeon, according to her mother,
Shoshana Boyd.
“She was so innocent. She was so innocent,”
Boyd told the New York Daily News.
“I just want people to stop shooting and
realize who they’re hurting. It’s just random.
They don’t understand. They don’t understand
who they’re hurting.”
Gay competed in the 2016 Olympics on the
4×100-metre relay team but didn’t win a
medal.
He was also a member of the 4×100-metre
relay at the 2012 Olympics but was
disqualified due to a positive doping test.
