Three people including a father and son have been arrested by police investigating the shooting death of US Olympic sprinter Tyson Gay's daughter, police said Monday.

Trinity was a rising track star herself, a sprinter for Lafayette High School in Lexington, according to CNN affiliate WKYT.

The exterior of the Cook Out restaurant where Trinity Gay, the 15-year old daughter of Olympian and Lexington native Tyson Gay was shot and killed early Sunday morning, October 16, 2016, in the parking lot of the restaurant, in Lexington, Ky.

Trinity Gay, 15, was reportedly caught in the cross-fire as shots were exchanged between two vehicles outside of a restaurant in Lexington, Kentucky.

The first arrest announced by the Lexington Police on Sunday was 21-year-old Dvonta Middlebrooks.

Fayette County Superintendent Manny Caulk said in a statement, "Please join us in keeping the Gay family close in thought and prayer and supporting the students, staff, and families at Lafayette High during this unspeakably hard time". "It's so insane. I have no idea what happened", Tyson told Lex 18.

Tyson Gay's shock and grief over the death of his teen daughter is apparent in his quotes on the matter. She also had dreams of becoming a surgeon.

"She was full of energy and life", said Mullins, who had Gay in consumer science classes along with the Future Educators of America club.

A vigil is planned at 8 p.m. Monday on the school's track, where Trinity Gay excelled. Her father still holds the state record in the 100 metres set in 2001. She was in the parking lot hanging out with friends when she was shot. He had to return a silver medal he won for his part in the 4×100-meter relay at the 2012 London Games after testing positive for steroids.

Last summer's Games in Rio featured another stinging disappointment for Gay, 33, who has battled injuries.

Messages of support have flooded in to the Gay family following the shooting.
