Trinity, a high school student and sprinter herself, was not involved with either group, and was simply in the worst place at the worst time as two cars of people got into an altercation and began firing at each other.

An innocent bystander, Trinity was shot in the neck. Very quickly she was taken to a nearby hospital, but within an hour she was pronounced dead.

Tyson, an extremely well-known American sprinter, is reportedly flying to Kentucky this afternoon. He told the media:

The Purple One may be gone, but his legacy continues to live on.

Stevie Wonder and Chaka Khan headlined a star-studded tribute concert to Prince, nearly six months after the music legend's death.

On Thursday, the singers took the stage at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minnesota to duet on Prince's I Feel for You. The duo then performed the late singer's hit 1999, getting the sold-out audience partying like it was, well… 1999.

Other stars in the lineup were Tori Kelly, Doug E. Fresh, Judith Hill, and Jessie J — who joined as a last minute replacement after Christina Aguilera canceled due to a "vocal illness."

The celebration also included a message from President Obama, who kicked off the event in a video message praising the music icon, saying:

"Thank you, Prince … for all the great work that you've done. You'll be in our hearts forever."

Absolutely devastating.

A six-week-old baby tragically died after she fell to her death down an elevator shaft in New York on Thursday.

Police say little Areej Ali's mother was waiting for the elevator on the 23rd floor of a Brooklyn building (pictured above), while she sat in her stroller.

Unfortunately the doors opened with no elevator present. The parent didn't realize the car wasn't at their floor, and instinctively pushed her infant forward; Areej, still in the stroller, fell down the shaft to the building's 17th floor.

So heartbreaking.

The baby was rushed to Coney Island Hospital, but was sadly pronounced dead.

What's also upsetting is that records show the building has multiple complaints on file with the Buildings Department, and the elevators weren't functioning properly on two separate occasions last month.

Our hearts are with Areej's loved ones during this tragic time.
