Trial continues in shooting of Olympian's daughter

Lexington, KY -

(WLEX18) - The trial for four suspects charged in the 2016 shooting death of Trinity Gay, daughter of U.S. Olympic sprinter Tyson Gay, continued on Wednesday in Lexington. 

15-year-old Trinity was shot in the neck and ultimately died after two groups of people exchanged gunfire in the parking lot of a CookOut restaurant in October of 2016. 

Prosecutors and defense lawyers argued on Wednesday over who fired the shots which led to the teen's death. 

Prosecutors claim Chaz Taylor fired those shots first. 

He's charged with wanton murder. 

His son, D'Markeo, and two others - Lamonte Williams and D'Vonta Middlebrooks - are also charged. 

All four of them deny shooting anyone. 

Several witnesses have testified in this case.

Yesterday, one of them told the jury they tried to keep Tiffany awake while driving to the hospital, but she did not look good.

"She was shaking really hard. She was foaming at the mouth. She kept passing out and waking back up," witness Alexa Garner said.

Fayette Circuit Judge Ernesto Scorsone last week denied a request from the defense and the commonwealth for the jury to visit the crime scene, saying the jury could be misled because they would be visiting during the day, rather than at night, when the shooting occurred.

Trinity's Olympian father was in the courtroom, closely listening and watching the men accused of killing his daughter.
