Actress Tamera Mowry-Housley's niece confirmed as victim in Thousand Oaks shooting

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. In an very bad twist, Adam Housley was one of the reporters on the ground who covered the 2015 San Bernardino shooting, according to CBS 2 anchor Peter Daut. "Can you please DM me your information?" she wrote.

That includes Tamera Mowry-Housley and her husband, Adam Housley, whose niece, Alaina Housley, was reported as being in the dance hall when Ian Long, 28, opened fire.

According to Los Angeles Times reporter Andrea Castillo, Housley arrived at Los Robles Regional Medical Center searching for his niece, Alaina. "I'm hoping I'm wrong", he told the newspaper.

Tamera responded on Twitter to one classmate, who 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".

At least 12 people were killed when a gunman opened fire inside the country-western dance hall late Wednesday.

"We just learned that our niece Alaina was one of the victims of last night's shooting at Borderline bar in Thousand Oaks", Mowry-Housley and her husband stated via their joint representative in a statement to USA Today.

Ashley revealed that she had already been in touch with Adam, and there was nothing new to report at the time.

"My gut is saying she's inside the bar, dead", he said.

Adam has since taken to Twitter to ask his followers for prayers for his niece, who he described as "a attractive soul". "Please do me a favor and introduce yourself in person and see what the result will be", Housley responded. "Alaina Housely, we are praying".

The bar is popular among college students in the area. The only victim who has been publicly identified is Ventura County Police Sergeant Ron Helus.
