[Updated] Tamera Mowry-Housley's Niece Killed in Thousand Oaks Bar Massacre

Tamera Mowry took to social media searching for her niece who was at the college bar in Thousand Oaks, Calif. on Wednesday night where a gunman opened fire and brutally killed 12 people.

Update: Her niece has been confirmed as one of the victims in the attack. Tamera and her husband, Adam Housley, have issued the following statement:

“Our hearts are broken. We just learned that our niece Alaina was one of the victims of last night’s shooting at Borderline bar in Thousand Oaks. Alaina was an incredible young woman with so much life ahead of her and we are devastated that her life was cut short in this manner. We thank everyone for your prayers and ask for privacy at this time.”

So sad. RIP.

…original story below…

via TMZ:

Tamera’s niece, Alaina Housley, was one of just a handful of girls who went line dancing Wednesday night at Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks … this according to a tweet sent by Alaina’s friend who added Alaina was the only girl unaccounted for among her friends.

Tamera responded to the tweet saying, “Ashley this is her aunt Tamera Mowry Housley. Can you please DM me your information?” The exchange is pretty heartbreaking … Ashley replied saying she’s been in contact with Alaina’s uncle and so far there’s nothing new to report.

Tamera’s husband, Adam, went looking for Alaina at a local hospital but a reporter tweeted guards wouldn’t let him in because the hospital was on lockdown. Making matters worse … Alaina’s Apple Watch and iPhone still showed her location at the bar, this according to the L.A. Times.

Adam told the newspaper, “My gut is saying she’s inside the bar, dead. I’m hoping I’m wrong.”

We hope he’s wrong too. Let’s pray she just dropped her phone as she ran out to safety.
