Airbnb will ban "party houses" after a deadly shooting at a California home rented through the service.
In a series of tweets on Saturday, Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky said the company would take steps to "fight unauthorized parties and get rid of violent host and guest behavior."
The company will create a dedicated "party house" response team, and it will expand manual screening of high-risk orders, Chesky tweeted. [1[ads1]9659002] Airbnb will also take action against users who violate these policies, including removal, he tweeted.
The company's initiatives come on the heels of a shootout at a Halloween party Thursday night in a home in Orinda, California that had been rented on Airbnb. Five people died from Friday 1. November.
