LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Police say a fourth person has been charged in connection with the shooting death of Olympic sprinter Tyson Gay's 15-year-old daughter.

Lexington police said Wednesday that 20-year-old Lamonte A. Williams has been charged with wanton endangerment.

Witnesses told police that gunfire was exchanged between two vehicles early Sunday. Trinity Gay was hit by a round.

Three men charged with wanton endangerment previously pleaded not guilty Monday and face an Oct. 25 court date. They are 38-year-old Chazerae Taylor; his 19-year-old son, D'Markeo Taylor; and 21-year-old Dvonta Middlebrooks. Middlebrooks also is charged with possession of a firearm by a felon.

News media report the Taylors were released from jail Wednesday on $5,000 cash bond each.

Tyson Gay has said from talking with police that he believes his daughter was an innocent bystander.
