"Diamond was a kind young woman and a talented student-athlete," Henrico High School principal Karin Castillo-Rose wrote in an email to the school community. "Her loss will be felt on every walkway and classroom in our school."

The principal's email did not mention the shooting.

Henrico Police announced Friday that another teenager was charged with the student's murder.

"Henrico County Police have charged a juvenile in connection to yesterday’s homicide," Henrico Police spokesperson Lt. Matt Pecka wrote in an email. "The juvenile has been charged on petitions with attempted robbery and murder. The juvenile is in custody at the Henrico Juvenile Detention Home."

The circumstances surrounding the shooting that killed Brown-Mosby remain under investigation by Henrico Police.

"Detectives are seeking any information from members of our Glenwood Farms community regarding the initial shooting," Pecka continued.

On Thursday afternoon, a Virginia State Trooper was helping a driver who was having car trouble on I-64 westbound on the Shockoe Valley Bridge. While the trooper was with the driver, a second car pulled up.


The driver of the second car asked the trooper for help because a passenger in the car had been shot.

Brown-Mosby was later pronounced dead at the hospital.

Anyone with information about the shooting was asked to call Henrico Police Detective Seay at 804-501-7323 or Crime Stoppers at 804-780-1000.
