A father and son are the latest arrests in the investigation into the fatal shooting of the 15-year-old daughter of Olympic sprinter Tyson Gay. 

Trinity Gay died at a Lexington, Kentucky, hospital Sunday after police say she was fatally shot in the neck around 4 a.m. during a shootout between people in two parked vehicles in the parking lot of a nearby restaurant.

In a statement, Lexington police say 38-year-old Chazerae Taylor and his 19-year-old son D'Markeo are charged with wanton endangerment in the early Sunday shooting.

Police charged another man, 21-year-old Dvonta Middlebrooks, with the same count and a weapons charge.

Investigators say Middlebrooks was in the lot and fired multiple shots. Police say they've also found two vehicles involved.

Trinity Gay was a star track athlete at Lexington's Lafayette High.
