Police in Lexington, Kentucky, have detained two people for questioning who may have been involved in the shootout that killed Trinity Gay on Oct. 16. Get the details here.
Witnesses reported gunshots outside near the Cook Out diner where Trinity was around 4 a.m. on Oct. 16, identifying a gray Dodge Charger and a dark sports car with tinted windows. Shortly after the fatal incident, police were able to track down the Dodge Charger and put two people in custody. It’s unclear if these two were responsible for the gunshot that hit Trinity in the back of the neck and killed her, but they will be questioned.
Despite the fact that police have two people in custody, the suspects have yet to be identified. In addition, police are still searching for the second vehicle, so there’s still a lot of question as to who was involved in this sad situation or who fired the shot that killed Trinity.
One thing that has been determined, though, is that Trinity (who is the daughter of Olympic sprinter Tyson Gay) was not with the suspects who took her life. Brenna Angel, a Lexington police spokeswoman, declared that Trinity, 15, was not in either vehicle that was reportedly part of the shootout.
How Trinity got in the middle of the gunfight is unclear, but one of her last tweets referenced the shooting that was happening right outside where she was. “Of course they start shootin,” she wrote in the eerie tweet. Once police question the two suspects they have in custody, we hope to have a little more clarity as to what happened that ended up taking Trinity’s life far too soon.
