Last Halloween a shooting took place at an Airbnb rental in Orinda, CA. Five people were shot and killed. The party had been advertised on social media. Many of the guests in attendance were rival gang members.
Just earlier in October Governor Newsom signed 15 MORE gun control laws “aimed at strengthening gun control and the gun violence restraining order program.”
According to Gov. Newsom, “California is once again leading the nation in passing meaningful gun safety reforms.”
ABC 10 reported at the time that former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, co-founder of Giffords: Courage to Fight Gun Violence said, “The legislative package Governor Newsom signed today will help make California safer for all who call it home.”
Guess two felons in possession of handguns missed the memo about keeping California safer.
SF Gate reports that two suspects associated with the Orinda shooting – Domico Dones and Frederick Johnson – were arrested and charged with felon in possession of a handgun with a laser scope and ammunition (Dones) and similar charges for Johnson (who also faced an additional charge of child endangerment).
Agents with the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives linked a gun used in the shooting in Orinda to other shootings in the Bay Area. More from the SF Gate report:
“It wasn’t clear whether Dones and Johnson were at the unsanctioned Oct. 31 party at an Airbnb rental house in Orinda. Authorities said they couldn’t discuss how their arrests relate to the shooting investigation because it remains active.
Dones and Johnson were not among five people who were arrested last week in connection with the shooting. Four of them were then released after Contra Costa county prosecutors said they didn’t have enough evidence to file charges.
The East Bay Times reports the fifth suspect remain held on an unrelated probation violation.
The ATF is offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to arrests or convictions in the case.
Rival gang members and people armed with guns were among the more than 100 people who were at the party that was promoted on social media as an “Airbnb mansion party,” authorities said. Investigators said they believe an altercation that started in the kitchen led to gunfire and that there were multiple shooters.”
