The online real estate booking service Airbnb has banned the renting of residential buildings for private parties. The management of the company had to take such a step after the shooting in one of the rented houses in California, writes Bloomberg.
“We will redouble our efforts to combat unauthorized parties and address misconduct by hosts and guests, including actions that lead to horrific events like Orinda,” said Airbnb chief executive Brian Chesky.

Chesky also promised to step up manual checks on bookings that are flagged as suspicious by the system.

In addition, a "special rapid response group" will be created to handle the announcements of the lease of premises.

The shooting took place on October 31 in Orinda, California, at a Halloween party. The venue for the private event was rented through Airbnb. The incident killed five people.

The owner of the house later stated that the woman who rented it promised to hold a family meeting there for 12 relatives.

In reality, the party was widely advertised on social networks, so more than 100 people gathered at it
