Tamera Mowry-Housley and husband Adam Housley's niece Alaina died in the shooting at a college bar in Thousand Oaks, California.

Alaina Housley was just 18 and a freshman at Pepperdine University. "Our hearts are broken", the pair said in a statement.

Tamera Mowry-Housley said she is in "disbelief" after her niece, Alaina Housley, was killed during the mass shooting in Thousand Oaks, California Wednesday night.

In a statement released to the media, the couple called Alaina an "incredible young woman with so much life ahead of her".

Tamera responded to Ashley's tweet, informing her that she is Alaina's aunt and would like to know more about the situation.

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

"I'm afraid he was the boy who went towards the gunman and not ran away", the father said.

Xi, Trump G20 meeting will be of great significance - China
On Monday, Trump said China wanted to make a deal and added: "If we can make the right deal, a deal that's fair, we'll do that". Mr Trump has vowed to inflict more tariffs that would hit nearly all Beijing's U.S. exports if China retaliates further.

Mowry-Housley continued, "I will miss our inside jokes, us serenading at the piano".

He also shared an image of their niece on Instagram, saying, "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". The suspect, since identified as Ian David Long, was found dead at the scene.

Noting that her Apple Watch and iPhone's location is still indicating that she is at the bar, Adam told the L.A. Times, "My gut is saying she's inside the bar, dead".

Long opened fire inside Borderline about 11:20 p.m., during the bar's "college country night" event, authorities said.

Earlier, Pepperdine University classmate of Housley's took to Twitter, stating her friend had gone missing and offered a brief description of her attire.

Tamera then asked: "Is she [Alaina] the only one unaccounted for?"

Adam Housley also tweeted about Alaina, writing "Please pray if you believe". "It's not fair how you were taken and how soon you were taken from us", wrote Tamera on Instagram, alongside three photos of her niece. "The fact that Alaina will never have an opportunity to fulfill her goals is heartbreaking".
