No more “party houses” on Airbnb’s services list after a deadly shooting at a property in Orinda, California.
Several people were injured and five died. The shooting happened on Halloween night. The home was originally booked for a small number of people, but the venue was advertised on social media for a party and 100 guests attended.
CEO Brian Chesky, Airbnb co-founder, announced that the company will act against unauthorized parties. On Saturday, Chesky announced that party houses will be banned immediately, and that action will be taken to rid Airbnb of “abusive host and guest conduct”.
