Last night, on Halloween, there was reportedly a horrific shooting that has left at least four people dead and several others injured. The suspect is reportedly still at large.
The shooting allegedly took place at a Halloween party in Orinda, California, which is about 17 miles from downtown San Francisco. According to the East Bay Times, officers arrived on the scene at 10:45 p.m. to an Airbnb rental.
The outlet reports, “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 party was allegedly promoted as an Airbnb Mansion party by someone named “tonecapone300” who had the caption, “We going f*cking viral this weekend.” The Instagram account appears to be deleted but see an alleged screenshot below:
