Tamera Mowry-Housley's Niece Dies in Thousand Oaks Shooting

"Our hearts are broken".

Alaina Housley's roommate, Ashley, posted images of her on Twitter, saying she's still missing after the shooting at Borderline Bar & Grill that killed 12 people, including a Ventura County sheriff's sergeant. "We thank everyone for your prayers and ask for privacy at this time".

According to the Napa Valley Register, Alaina graduated from Vintage High past year, before becoming a student at Pepperdine University, where her suitemate had tweeted a photo of her earlier in the day, saying she hadn't come home from the bar.

Alaina is one of 11 others killed and at least a dozen more injured after a lone gunman entered the country music bar during "college night".

Adam and Tamera learned that their niece went missing shortly after news of the Borderline shooting spread online.

Tamera Mowry-Housley and Adam Housley's niece has died.

Mowry-Housley's twin sister and former co-star, Tia Mowry, also sought information through social media posts early in the day.

Their niece, Alaina Housley, was at the bar and has not yet been accounted for.

The killer was identified as 28-year-old Ian David Long, a former machine-gunner and decorated combat veteran of the war in Afghanistan.

"A guard didn't let him through, saying [the hospital] was on lockdown", Castillo wrote on Twitter "He said Alaina, a Pepperdine freshman, was at the bar with several friends".

By late morning, the teen's Apple Watch and iPhone still showed her location on the dance floor, the uncle said.

According to USA Today, Mowry and her husband have released a statement about the shocking news. "She's an awesome girl". "She is wearing denim shorts, a blue flannel and sneakers", wrote the friend.

"We offer our deepest condolences to the Housley family and ask that our community join us in keeping Alaina's family, friends, and loved ones in their prayers during this incredibly hard time". "I'm hoping I'm wrong", he said.
