Lexington - 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.

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.
