He was working at the base as a counselor at the time of the shooting.

He was one of 19 people shot, three of them fatally, before the alleged gunman turned the gun on himself Wednesday afternoon at the Texas military facility.

His mother says she tried to check on her son when she heard about the shootings.

Owens will be buried in Lake Spring, Missouri.
