16-year-old girl from Houston was fatally shot while walking her dog

Like most days, on Tuesday night, 16-year-old Diamond Alvarez was walking her family’s dog, Peanuts, in Houston’s southwest neighborhood.

Since it was already dark, her mother, Anna Machado, told her not to go outside for only 20 minutes and then return home. But Diamond never returned, as she was mortally wounded on Tuesday around 9:30 p.m. a couple of blocks on the side of the street near the grassy field where all the neighborhood children play. Her family found her body in the green space after Peanut ran home without Diamond. Machado tried to revive her daughter by performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation, but it was too late.

“I tried and I tried and I tried and I saw her that there was nothing else I could do, I just started telling her how much I love her. And “I’m always here,” Machado said.

Houston police on Thursday continued their search for the man who shot Diamond multiple times. Police say witnesses reported hearing several gunshots and then the sound of tires screeching as a possibly dark vehicle fled the scene. Investigators have not commented on a possible motive for the shooting.

Machado said that when her brother heard the shots, she called Diamond twice, but the calls went straight to voicemail.

On Thursday afternoon, Machado and other family members and friends gathered at a makeshift memorial with candles, stuffed animals and balloons placed near where her body was found, and fondly remembered Diamond as a happy person who worked hard. loved school and dreamed of becoming a beautician one day.

“And she didn’t graduate,” Machado said of his daughter, who was in her second year of high school. “She didn’t get her degree. She didn’t become a mother, no marriage, no children, nothing.”

Diamond’s uncle, Roberto Mejia, said that Diamond brought joy to everyone she met.

“We just can’t believe that something so terrible can happen to such a sweet person,” Mejia said.

The Diamond family set up a GoFundMe page to help pay for her funeral expenses.

The Diamond family hoped that the police would find her killer.

“If anyone knows, come out and speak up. Who would want someone to be so dangerous out there?” she said. “I will not get my daughter back. But at least you know he’ll pay.
