SOUNDBITE (English) Anna Machado, Diamond Alvarez's Mother:++PARTIALLY COVERED++"Someone knows to come out and speak up. I mean, who would want someone to be out there like that, that dangerous?"STORYLINE:Like she did most days, 16-year-old Diamond Alvarez walked her family's dog Peanut in her southwest Houston neighborhood on Tuesday evening.  Since it was already dark, her mother, Anna Machado, told her to only stay out 20 minutes and then return home. But Diamond never came back as she was fatally shot around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday a couple of blocks away on the side of a street near a grassy field where all the neighborhood children play. Her family found her body by the greenspace after Peanut ran home without Diamond. Machado tried to revive her daughter by performing CPR, but it was too late.  "I tried and I tried and I tried and, and I seen her that it was nothing else I could do, I just started telling her how much I loved her. And 'I'm always here,'" Machado said.  Houston police on Thursday continued looking for who shot Diamond multiple times. Police say that witnesses reported hearing multiple gunshots and then the sound of tires squealing as a possibly dark vehicle fled the scene. Investigators have not commented on a possible motive for the shooting.  Machado said when her brother heard the gunshots, she twice phoned Diamond, but the calls went straight to voicemail.  Thursday afternoon, Machado and other family members and friends gathered at a makeshift memorial with candles, stuffed animals and balloons set up near where her body was found and fondly remembered Diamond as a happy person who worked hard, loved school and dreamed of being a beautician one day.  "And she didn't get to graduate," Machado said of her daughter, who was a sophomore in high school. "She didn't get her diploma. She didn't get to be a mother, wedding, kids, nothing."Diamond's uncle, Roberto Mejia, said Diamond brought joy to everyone she met.  "We just can't believe that something so horrible would happen to a sweet person like that," Mejia said.  ===========================================================Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com(ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.
