Airbnb to ban party houses in wake of Halloween shooting that left 5 dead

Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky said Saturday the company will ban party houses and take other steps to safeguard hosts and guests after five people died at a Halloween party hosted at California home that was rented on the service.
Chesky made the announcement via a series of tweets Saturday. What happened on Thursday night in Orinda, CA was horrible, Chesky wrote. I feel for the families and neighbors impacted by this tragedy we are working to support them.
Chesky then announced that party houses would be banned and that the company is redoubling efforts to combat unauthorized parties.

Starting today, we are banning party houses and we are redoubling our efforts to combat unauthorized parties and get rid of abusive host and guest conduct, including conduct that leads to the terrible events we saw in Orinda. Here is what we are doing:
