Tamera Mowry & Adam Housley’s Niece Passes Away In California Shooting


We are broken. Our hearts are broken.

Tamera Mowry & her husband Adam Housley confirmed that their niece Alaina, 18, had been among those killed at the Borderline Bar and Grill Shooting.

"We want to honor Alaina by focusing on how she lived her life".

Promptly after confirming their niece's death, Tamera's co-hosts sent messages of love and support to her and her family.

In a tweet, Tamera responded, "Ashely [sic] this is her aunt Tamera Mowry Housley".

According to a Los Angeles Times reporter, Housley went to the Los Robles Regional Medical Center looking for Alaina early this morning.

"Hold on to the memories and never let go.she will forever be in your hearts.my prayers and love to you and your family and to all those grieving at this time", one person wrote.

Alaina's Apple Watch and iPhone still showed her location on the dancefloor.

Adam's and Tamera's followers immediately started leaving comments on Alaina's Instagram as well.

Using a smoke bomb and a handgun, a hooded former Marine dressed all in black opened fire during college night at a country music bar in southern California, killing 12 people and sending hundreds fleeing in panic before apparently taking his own life, authorities said Thursday.

Our sweet Alaina Housely is gone.

"I mean, you know, I've been on your side the whole time, and to be on this side's not fun", Adam told ET, referring to his work as a journalist. "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".

Mowry-Housley's twin sister, Tia Mowry, also took to social media to ask for prayers. My heart breaks. I'm still in disbelief.

Adam also shared a statement from his brother's family, saying they are "some of the best people you'll ever meet" and Alaina was one of the "most generous people in the world". "We love you. We are devastated".

Long was found dead when police entered at the bar.

Ventura County Sheriff's Sgt. Ron Helus rushed in to help but was shot and killed.

"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".
