On late Wednesday night, other tragic mass shooting occurred. This time, it took place at the Borderline Bar and Grill, located in Thousand Oaks, California, a frequent destination for college students in the area. An estimated twelve people were killed in the shooting, while 24 people were injured. Among the deceased victims was Alaina Housley, the 18-year-old niece of Sister, Sister actress Tamera Mowry-Housley. On social media, Mowry confirmed the news, and she offered her condolences to her late relative, taking time to remember the lost soul and hope she's in a better place now.

The devastating Instagram post came shortly after it was announced that Alaina Housley was among the slain victims earlier this week. The shooting, which occurred in "one of the safest cities in the county," according to Mayor Andy Fox -- as it was reported by CNN -- occurred close to midnight on November 7th. During the event, a gunman opened fire on the Southern California bar. In addition to the post above, Tamera Mowry-Housley and her husband, Adam Housley, released the following statement to the press regarding their departed relative and the life she lived before it was tragically stricken. It started with a photo:

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.

In addition to this statement, the couple went on social media and offered their thoughts and prayers for everyone mourning the lives lost on this day.

Here's what Tamera Mowry-Housley wrote about her belated niece in the Instagram post found above.

Alaina. My sweet, sweet Alaina. My heart breaks. I'm still in disbelief. It's not fair how you were taken and how soon you were taken from us. I was blessed to know you ever since you were 5. You stole my heart. I will miss our inside jokes, us serenading at the piano. Thank you for being patient with me learning how to braid your hair, and I will never forget our duet singing the national anthem at Napa's soccer game. I love you. I love you. I love you. You are gonna make one gorgeous angel. My heart and prayers are with every victim of this tragedy.

In addition to these sentiments from Tamera Mowry-Housley and her husband, Pepperdine University, where Alaina Housley studied, provided the following condolences to the press, expressing their sorrowful feelings about this tragic situation and asking everyone to keep Alaina in their thoughts.

Our hearts are broken with the news of this profound loss. We offer our deepest condolences to the Housley family and ask that our community join us in keeping Alaina's family, friends, and loved ones in their prayers during this incredibly difficult time.

Our sympathies are extended to Tamera Mowry-Housley, her husband and all her grieving family and friends during this difficult time. It's never easy to say goodbye to a loved one, especially one so young and under such terrible circumstances, and we hope they find peace during this horrible tragedy.
