"My dad is such a loved soul by so many people. It's very unfortunate that he was taken from us the way that he was," she told Reporter Brian Hill.
Investigators say it was right after 11 p.m. last Thursday when someone called them to the Royal Oaks Apartments in southwest Atlanta.
"Utter shock initially, disbelief. I was in a state of, 'This can't be happening.' I felt like I was in a bad dream, "Diamond explained.
It was in this parking lot where officers found Glover shot to death near his car.
"I know that I'm going to get justice for my dad. I know that I have to be his voice in this state. I know I have to be strong for my dad."
Diamond said her father lived at the complex on Camp Creek Parkway near Stone Road.
"It was so out of the blue. My dad was loved by so many people. He was a very quiet man, very to himself," Diamond said.
He had just started his own mobile detail and car wash business with her 12-year-old brother.
"He was so proud of it. He was so proud of it," she said.
His family has set up a fundraiser to help cover funeral expenses. If you know anything about Glover's death or any violent crimes in the city, call Crime Stoppers.
