Tia Mowry mourns sister Tamera’s niece Alaina Housley after she was killed in mass shooting

Tia Mowry shares a series of heartfelt posts as she mourns the loss of her sister Tamera Mowry's niece. 

It’s a sad time for Tia Mowry’s twin sister, Tamera Mowry whose husband, Adam Houseley's niece died during the mass shooting in Thousand Oaks. The tragedy devastated the couple and Tia shares in mourning their loss. 

LOSING ALAINA

Alaina Housley was one of the victims killed at the Borderline bar on Thursday after a lone gunman opened fire inside the establishment. Tamera and Adam confirmed the news with a heartbroken message. 

“Our hearts are broken. We just learned that our niece Alaina was one of the victims of last night’s shooting at Borderlinebar 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.”

Shortly after, Tia tweeted her sorrow.

“Our sweet Alaina Housley is gone. We love you. We are devastated.”

SEARCHING FOR ALAINA

Prior to the announcement of Alaina’s death, Tamera and Adam were hopeful she would still be alive. The 17-year-old was one of the last victims to be discovered dead. She was reported missing by a friend and the couple aided in searching for her. They tweeted for help in the search while Tia offered prayers on her Instagram, hopeful that Alaina would be found alive. 

“Alaina Housely we are praying. We love u! If you know anything or any information please let us know. We love you! #borderline”

Before this, Tia tweeted how she felt upon hearing the news of Alaina’s disappearance. 

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

MOURNING ALAINA

The family is reportedly shaken by Alaina’s passing. Tia is especially hurt for her twin who’s very close to her. Still trying to wrap her head around the senselessness of Alaina’s death, Tia posted a series of images paying tribute to what was lost. Her first post two days ago was a black and white image of a heart with the word Thousand Oaks transcribed in it. She simply captioned it with a heart emoji. 

Her second post a day later was an image of a black ribbon with Alaina’s name on it. In her caption, she wrote, “Enough.”

Alaina was a freshman at Pepperdine University. She was at the bar attending a college party celebrating country music at the time of the attack. Her high school principal at Vintage High described her as “the kind of young person you want your kids to be.” 

Our prayers go out to Alaina’s family who lost a beautiful soul.
