Police have caught 5 suspects in the Halloween gun firing incident at a California Airbnb that ended up in 5 partygoers lifeless.
The seizures came through a coordinated police sting in 4 Northern California towns, the sources report.
5 partygoers were murdered on Halloween night at a residence in the rich town of Orinda, just east of Berkeley, that had been hired by Airbnb. The owner of the house informed the sources that he had leased out the house to a woman who told him she was preparing to have a family gathering for approximately a dozen people.
However, authorities stated that upwards of 100 partygoers escaped the residence in fear after shots rang out. One eyewitness told the sources that most of the party’s attendees were university students.
The Costa Sheriffs Office affirmed the sources about the arrest of 5 men about 20 years old in association with the gunfires. 4 of the men were being detained without bond on crime and plot charges, while one was being detained as an accomplice.
Contra Costa County Sheriff David Livingston said Thursday, November 14 that two of the victims at the party were themselves loaded, which he stated may have “performed a part in the disaster,” as per the sources.
Orinda Mayor Inga Miller stated to the sources that she was comforted that police were shaping development in the case.
“I believe in this time of difficulty, people feel anxiety, they feel many sentiments,” Miller said. “They feel sorrow for the sufferers in this case and fear for gunfire anywhere.”
Subsequent to the gunfire, Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky announced that the business would improve efforts to “combat unapproved parties and get relieved of offensive host and guest behavior.”
