Niece of Sister, Sister actress Tamera Mowry killed in Thousand Oaks shooting

Tamera Mowry

It was revealed earlier in the week that Tamera and Adam were concerned for the wellbeing of their niece.

"We are heartbroken today by the news that one of our own, 2018 Vintage High School graduate Alaina Housley, was killed in a mass shooting in Southern California". The other friends who were at the nightclub reunited at an undisclosed location after the bloodbath.

Just last month, Mowry-Housley gushed over her niece and how much she had grown as a person. "Can you please DM me your information?".

According to Andrea Castillo, a Los Angeles Times reporter, Adam has been to the Los Robles Regional Medical Center to look for Alaina.

Adam Housley, who until six weeks ago was national correspondent for Fox News, arrived at the hospital around 3:30 a.m. searching for his niece.

Somehow in the midst of their mourning, Tamara managed to post a gut wrenching tribute to her lovely niece, saying.

In the statement, they said Alaina was "everything we could hope for in a child" and also thanked Ventura County Sheriff's Sergeant Ron Helus' family for their "sacrifice". I'm a lover of words, photography, books, travel, animals and The Ohio State Buckeyes. She spoke to her last night but has not heard from her since the shooting, she said.

After a Twitter user offered her prayers, Mowry responded saying, "We haven't found her yet". We are broken. Our hearts are broken.


Before Alaina's death was confirmed, Tamera and Adam were desperately trying to confirm her whereabouts on Twitter, by communicating with her college roommate.

Tia Mowry, who starred with her twin in the TV show "Sister Sister", posted an image of a young Alaina between the two Mowry sisters at one of their weddings.

The gunman, identified as Ian David Long, 28, opened fire inside the country-western bar with a Glock 21-made.45-caliber handgun, killing at least 11 victims at the scene.

"Our hearts are broken", the couple said.

Alaina is reportedly the only one of her group of friends who was at the bar that has not yet been accounted for.

"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.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Adam also tried to visit Los Robles Regional Medical Center around 3:30 a.m. on Thursday, where numerous victims were taken for medical assistance.
