No arrests after California Halloween shooting kills 4

ORINDA, Calif. (AP) — Authorities are trying to find the killer or killers who opened fire at a Halloween night party in a San Francisco suburb, killing four people.

Witnesses described people running in terror as shots rang out Thursday night at a rented four-bedroom home in Orinda.

About 100 people showed up for a party that apparently had been advertised on the internet.

Two guns were found at the scene.

The home was rented through Airbnb by a woman who claimed that she wanted a dozen family members with asthma to escape the smoke from a giant wildfire in neighboring Sonoma County, according to a person with knowledge of the transaction.

The Airbnb ad banned parties and the city has a 13-person limit on occupancy for short-term rentals.

Airbnb says it’s “urgently investigating” what happened.
