The death of the rising track star drew condolences and sympathy messages on social media from the local track and high school athletics community, community leaders, international track stars and others. Friends and those who knew Trinity expressed their grief. Here is a sampling of that reaction:   Online reports said 15-year-old Trinity Gay died after a shooting at a Lexington restaurant. Gay died from her injuries just before 5 am  on Sunday. Lexington police say they responded to a call of shots fired at the Cook Out restaurant on South Broadway just before 4 am.

 

Police say people in two cars exchanged gunfire, then drove away.

Officials say Gay was taken to UK Hospital with a gunshot wound to her neck.

Police are said to be questioning two people of interest in the case. 

Gay was a sprinter at Lafayette High in Lexington and finished fourth in the 100 meters and fifth in the 200 meters at the state Class 3A high school track meet in May, records show. She also ran on a 4x200 relay team that finished fourth. Her father also ran at Lafayette and still holds the state record in the 100 set in 2001.

 

A tweet from Kentucky High School Athletic Association Commissioner Julian Tackett said he was stunned by the death: "Shocked to hear of death of Trinity Gay. A life of such potential cut so tragically short. Sympathies to Tyson and entire family."

USA Track and Field also tweeted, "Sending our thoughts & prayers to @TysonLGay & his loved ones as they mourn the tragic & senseless loss of his daughter, Trinity."
