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.

Original Story

U.S. Olympic sprinter Tyson Gay's daughter, Trinity, was shot and killed in Kentucky.

Trinity, 15, was shot near the Cook Out restaurant in Lexington and was taken to the University of Kentucky Hospital, where she died.

This photo shows Tyson and Trinity.

Gay has competed in the last three Olympics, winning a silver medal in the 4x4 100-meter relay, though that was ultimately stripped from him after a doping scandal, The Guardian reports.

Trinity was a sprinter herself, winning the 200-meter race during a recent regional competition.

No suspects have been publicly identified in this shooting.

Other track stars offered condolences on Twitter.
