The young daughter of Olympic sprinter Tyson Gay was fatally shot over the weekend and now three men have been arrested in connection with her death.

Around 4 o’clock Sunday morning, Gay’s 15-year-old daughter Trinity was at the Lexington, Kentucky restaurant Cook Out when a group of men in two cars opened fire on each other in the parking lot. Trinity, who was an innocent bystander, was shot in the neck. She later died at University of Kentucky Hospital.

Gay confirmed the news to WLEX Sports Director Ala Cutler saying, “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.”

Authorities have arrested Dvonta Middlebrooks, 21, and charged him with wanton endangerment and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. It has been determined that Middlebrooks was in the parking lot and fired multiple shots at the time of the incident. Lexington police also say 38-year-old Chazerae Taylor and his 19-year-old son D’Markeo have been charged with wanton endangerment in connection with the shooting.

Trinity had aspirations of being just like her father, who is known as the second fastest man in the world. Young Gay was already a rising track star at Lafayette High School, where she was a sprinter. RIP.

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
