LEXINGTON, KENTUCKY — The daughter of U.S. track star Tyson Gay was killed in a shooting at a restaurant in Lexington, officials say.

CBS Lexington affiliate WKYT reports Trinity Gay, 15, was shot around 4 a.m. Sunday morning and pronounced dead about an hour later.

Trinity Gay was a rising star on the track team at Lafayette High School in Lexington, Kentucky, WKYT reports.

Lexington police say the shooting took place at the Cook Out restaurant on South Broadway, and it involved the exchange of gunfire between two cars, which left the scene.

Officials say Gay was shot in the neck, and she was not in either car involved.

Police say they’re questioning two people of interest in the case, and one of the two vehicles involved is still being sought.

Tyson Gay has competed in the last three Summer Olympics. He was part of a team that won a silver medal in the 4×100-meter relay at the 2012 London Games though that medal was ultimately stripped after Gay tested positive for steroids in 2013. He still holds the U.S. record for the 100-meter dash with a time of 9.69 seconds.
