A vigil was held on Monday (October 17) for Olympic sprinter Tyson Gay‘s 15-year-old daughter who was shot and killed outside a restaurant over the weekend in Lexington, Kentucky.

Three men have been charged, including a father and son, in connection with the incident, police said.

Trinity Gay was caught in an exchange of gunfire between the occupants of two vehicles at about 4 a.m. EDT (0800 GMT) on Sunday (October 16) in the parking lot of a fast food restaurant in her hometown of Lexington, police said.

She was transported by private vehicle to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead, police said.

Condolences poured in from track stars and officials, including Olympic sprinter Lolo Jones and the USA Track and Field organization.

Like her father, Trinity attended Lafayette High School, where she was a promising track competitor.

Gay, 34, who was born in Lexington, won three gold medals at the World Championships in 2007 in Osaka, Japan, taking titles in the 100 meters, 200 meters, and 4x100m relay. He set the U.S. record in the 100-meter sprint two years later.
