    The gunfire was between 2 cars and sounds like Trinity may have been inside the restaurant or maybe in the parking lot, but apparently wasn't intended victim. So very sad. Condolences to her family.

    3 charged in connection with Trinity Gay's shooting death.

    Dvonta Middlebrooks was charged with wanton endangerment and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. He was in the parking lot of Cook Out restaurant and fired multiple shots, according to his arrest citation. Chazerae M. Taylor, 38, and D’markeo C. Taylor, 19, were also charged with wanton endangerment in connection to the case, police said. The two are father and son.

    [...]

    Police have not disclosed a motive for the shooting. Witnesses reported the exchange of gunfire between a gray Dodge Charger and a dark-colored sports car with tinted windows, police said. Police found the Dodge Charger quickly and a blue Ford passenger car was later located.

    [...]

    At around 2 a.m., Trinity Gay made a reference to Cook Out on her Twitter account, and also Tweeted “Of course they start shootin.”
    Several hours after the shooting, restaurant workers said they were not allowed to comment. Shots were reportedly fired in the restaurant’s parking lot previously since it opened in 2014. No one was injured in one such incident in March 2015.

    I don't want to blame the victim in any way - but I'm surprised a 15 year old was out at that time of night.

    Glad to see they've made arrests already, and feel for the poor family.

    Unless I provide a link, every one of my posts are to be considered rumor, Speculation, or simply MY OWN OPINION.

    The missing and murdered cannot cry out for Justice. It is the duty for the living to do so for them.
