Default Airbnb CEO says company is banning 'party houses' after 5 deff Orinda, CA Halloween bongo party


Saturday, November 2, 2019 7:07PM
Airbnb Inc. says it's banning "party houses'' in the wake of a deadly shooting at an Airbnb rental in California.

Airbnb co-founder and CEO Brian Chesky said in a series of tweets Saturday that the San Francisco-based company is stepping up efforts to "combat unauthorized parties and get rid of abusive host and guest conduct.''

Chesky says Airbnb is expanding manual screening of "high risk'' reservations and forming a rapid response team dedicated to house parties.

Chesky said the company will remove guests who fail to comply.

Five people were killed in a Halloween party shooting Thursday night in the San Francisco suburb of Orinda.

People with knowledge of the transaction say the woman who rented the home lied to her Airbnb host, saying she was renting it for family members.

ORINDA, Calif. (KGO) -- The Contra Costa County Sheriff's Office says a fifth victim has died after a shooting at a Halloween party at an Airbnb in Orinda.

She has been identified as 19-year-old Oshiana Tompkins of Vallejo/Hercules.

Police also identified Friday four men killed as 22-year-old Tiyon Farley of Antioch, 24-year-old Omar Taylor of Pittsburg, 23-year-old Ramon Hill Jr. of San Francisco/Oakland and 29-year-old Javin County of Sausalito/Richmond.

A quiet Halloween night erupted in gunfire just before 11 p.m. in an Orinda neighborhood high in the hills on Lucille Way, where a shooting at a house party left four people dead, and at least four others injured.

"When the officers arrived, the encountered at least 100 people running from the home," said Orinda Police Chief David Cook.

A video posted on social media that shows the house crowded with people earlier in the evening.

"He got shot like about 3 or 4 times," said Romond Reynolds, who told reporters his 24-year-old son Armani Reynolds was among those shot. Romond Reynolds said his son is in stable condition at a local hospital.

A flyer circulated on social media called the event a Halloween Mansion Party. Invitees were instructed to direct message the host to get the address.
