“The Real” co-host, Tamera Mowry-Housley and her journalist husband, Adam Housley have confirmed the death of their 18-year-old niece, Alaina. She was one of the victims of a mass shooting that occurred late Wednesday night at a California bar.


Tamera and Adam told PEOPLE in a heartbreaking 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.”

The sad news comes after Tamera and Adam launched a frantic search for Alaina, who had been at the bar when a gunman attacked.


Tragedy struck last night after a gunman opened fire at a bar and grill in Thousand Oaks, killing at least 12 people, including himself. Following the incident, many folks have been trying to get in contact with their loved ones who were at the Borderline Bar during the attack.

Among them is a college student named Ashley, who took to Twitter to announce that her suitemate was still missing.


She wrote:

“My suitemate is still missing, she is wearing denim shorts, a blue flannel and sneakers, pls let me know if you know anything #Borderline.”

Tamera replied to the tweet, saying:

“Ashely this is her aunt Tamera Mowry Housley. Can you please DM me your information?”


Tamera also asked if her niece was one of the girls who fled the scene during the shooting and if Ashley knew what hospital she could be in.

Ashley told Tamera that her niece was the only one still missing as all of her other friends are safe. She also said she had been “in contact with Adam” but unfortunately, “there’s nothing new to report at the moment.”

Seven hours after the shooting, Tamera confirmed to a concerned fan that the girl was still not found. Tamera’s twin sister, Tia, has also asked for fans to pray, tweeting:

“Woke up shocked. Please pray. Please pray. I am numb.”


Housley shared a similar post on Twitter and another on Instagram with a picture of his niece. His heartbreaking message read:

“I really don’t know what to say other than I love this girl with all my heart and I’d give my life right now for a miracle.”

According to the girl’s handle tagged by Housley, her name is Alaina Housley.

The Los Angeles Times reported that Housley tried looking for his niece at the Los Robles Regional Medical Center around 3:30 a.m. on Thursday but was turned away because the hospital was on lockdown.


He told the publication he feared the worst:

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

Ian Long, 28, opened fire last night at the Borderline bar, a favorite hangout among college students from the nearby Pepperdine University and California Lutheran University.


The attack is the deadliest mass shooting in the United States since 17 classmates and teachers were murdered by a gunman at a Parkland high school in February.

It also comes less than two weeks after 11 Jews were gunned down in an anti-Semitic mass shooting in at a synagogue in Pittsburgh.

Our hearts are with the victims and their families during this trying time.
