LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18)– Jury selection began Monday for the four suspects charged in the 2016 death of Trinity Gay.

Trinity is the daughter of track and field Olympian Tyson Gay.

The 15-year-old was fatally shot in the neck while bullets were flying in the Cookout parking lot almost two years ago.

Police say the four men were firing shots at each other from their cars when a stray bullet hit her.

40-year-old Chazerae Me’Lon Taylor Sr. is charged with murder. His 21-year-old son D’Markeo Taylor is charged with wanton endangerment in connection with the shooting.

22-year-old Lamonte Williams and 23-year-old D’Vonta Middlebrooks are also charged with wanton endangerment.

We’re told jury selection will likely continue Tuesday as well.
