Lodging service Airbnb has decided to put ban on “Party Houses” and to strengthen its policies by taking strong steps for the protection of hosts and guests after the killing of five people in the Halloween shooting in Ordine, California.
Brian Chesky, CEO of Airbnb has made this announcement with a series of tweets on Saturday which he started with writing “What happened on Thursday night in Orinda, CA was horrible. I feel for the families and neighbors impacted by this tragedy – we are working to support them.”
He promised that an “immediate action” will be taken against those who found violating the companies policies, and even removing them from the service. He also added that Margaret Richardson, from Airbnb’s executive team, has been assigned to power up the review process to validate these new policies as soon as possible.
As reported by San Francisco Chronicle, Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office said the party had been advertised on social media as a mansion party, Police were headed to the home Oct. 31 over noise complaints when the gunfire began around 10:50 p.m. Four victims died at the scene and the fifth victim died on Friday night.
