The gunman, identified as 28-year-old Ian David Long, opened fire during college night at a Thousand Oaks country music bar, killing 12 and sending hundreds fleeing before apparently taking his own life.

[Update - 2:55 p.m.] In a statement to People Magazine, Tamera Mowry-Housley and her husband Adam Housley confirmed that their niece, Alaina Housley, was killed in the Borderline Bar & Grill shooting.

Tamera responded to the tweet saying, "Ashley this is her aunt Tamera Mowry Housley". "Can you please DM me your information?" The exchange is pretty heartbreaking. "She is wearing denim shorts, a blue flannel and sneakers, pls let me know if you know anything", Ashley tweeted, sharing two photos of the missing girl.

"Our hearts are broken", the pair told The Hollywood Reporter about their niece's passing in a statement.

Adam Housley immediately dashed to the nearest local hospital in search of information about Alaina Housley, but he was reportedly barred from entrance because the hospital is understandably on lockdown.

Adam Housley is a former Fox News correspondent.

Ashley said that all the other girls she and Alaina were with were accounted for.

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

According to her Instagram profile tagged by Housley, Alaina Housley was a student at Pepperdine University in Malibu, California.

Tamera also asked her followers to be on the lookout for her niece.
