A gunman is understood to have killed four people and injured several others in a mass shooting at a college Halloween party in a California Airbnb.
Police were summoned at around 11 pm on Thursday to Lucille Way, Orinda in Contra Costa County where around 100 young people had been partying in a rented property.
Officers described feeling overwhelmed by the sheer numbers at the chaotic house party, where at least four were dead and others seriously wounded, according to KTVU.
The event had been advertised on Instagram as an ‘Airbnb mansion party,’ according to East Bay Times, with a flyer asking guests to ‘DM for location, BYOB [bring your own booze] and BYOW [bring your own weed].’
Police were summoned at around 11 pm on Thursday to Lucille Way, Orinda where dozens of students had been partying in a rented property.
One of the posts had advertised the location as Orinda County and said doors would open at 10 pm.
Witnesses said the students at the party were from Laney College, NBC reported.
Contra Costa County Sheriff’s office tweeted: ‘Orinda Police Department and Contra Costa County Office of the Sheriff are working a multiple shooting in Orinda. The investigation is active. Details coming later.’
Video footage showed numerous ambulances and police vehicles arriving.
A neighbor said he heard cracks of gunfire erupting in the house and later talked to the homeowner who said it had been rented out through Airbnb.
The news follows a mass shooting that left three dead and nine others wounded in Long Beach on Tuesday at another Halloween party in California.
Three men aged in their 20s were found dead in the backyard of a house behind a nail salon.
Five other victims were taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries and another four were also later transported to the hospital.
Witnesses said people wearing costumes were seen limping out of the building following the attack.
