ORINDA — Four people were killed and several more injured during a shooting on Halloween night at an Orinda Halloween party, authorities said.

Map of Orinda
Orinda is a city in Contra Costa County, California, United States. The population was 17,643 at the 2010 census, and was estimated in 2012 to have increased to 18,342. In 2012, Orinda was ranked the second most friendly town in America by Forbes

Early Friday morning, officers had blocked off the curving hill of Lucille Way, while at least five police cars lined the road.

Orinda police chief David Cook said officers responded to a call around 10:45 p.m. Thursday for shots fired at a short-term rental.

When officers arrived, they found a party with more than 100 people in attendance, as well as four people who were pronounced dead at the scene and four others who suffered injuries, Cook said. No information was immediately available on victims’ gender or ages.

The home where the party took place is reached via narrow, winding streets, lined with multimillion-dollar homes, on a hill southwest of downtown Orinda. Made up of around 19,000 people, the city is located in central Contra Costa County and known to be a quiet bedroom community.

The streets were in darkness as a group of cars wound their way up and parked on a street as close as possible to the crime scene. People in the cars got out and huddled together, with some crying. They appeared to have been at the party or to know some of the victims. A woman in the group told a reporter they did not want to talk.

According to social-media posts, an “AirBNB mansion party” had been advertised for Thursday night. The flier was adorned with crime-scene tape and told attendees to “DM for location,” “BYOB” and “BYOW.” One post sharing the flier appeared to have a location of “Orinda, California” and said doors would open at 10 p.m.

An Airbnb spokesperson said early Friday that the company was “urgently investigating” the incident.

Halloween parties, often festive affairs, have seen striking upticks of fatal violence last year and this year. In Long Beach this week, three men died and nine others were injured late Wednesday during a joint birthday party and Halloween party. In an off-campus college party last Sunday in Greenville, Texas, two people were fatally shot and 12 others injured. Last year, a private Halloween party in East Palo Alto left two men dead and two others critically injured.
