HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- As Henrico Police investigate the shooting death of 17-year-old Diamond Brown-Mosby, Henrico basketball trainer Rudy Cunningham is mourning the loss of his former pupil.

"She attended my basketball camps that I did over the summer and whether it was helping serve lunch; she was a participant in camp, but she would help clean up; whatever I needed, she was right by my side," Cunningham said.

Henrico High School drumline coach Linwood Emanuel said the slain student made an impact on his team as well.

"[She was a] great student leader," Emanuel said. "That's the biggest thing I took from her when I met her last year."

Someone shot and killed Brown-Mosby Thursday afternoon on or near Byron Street in eastern Henrico, according to Crime Insider sources.

"The last thing I remember saying to her is to go out and be great like you always do," her drumline coach said. "She said, 'I got you Mr. Emmanuel.'"
