    Running Gun Battle in Valley Village

    Police are calling it a "running gun battle" in Valley Village after a house party turned violent on early Sunday morning. Ileana Diaz reports for the NBC4 News at 6 p.m. on June 10, 2018. (Published Sunday, June 10, 2018)

    An overnight shooting at a house party in North Hollywood sent seven people to the hospital, officials said.

    Police describe a chaotic scene when they arrived at the 12700 block of Tiara Street after a disturbance call just before 1 a.m. When officers got to the scene, multiple people were running away as the sound of gunshots pierced through the darkness of the night, said LAPD Lt. Bob Toledo.

    Initially, authorities said five people were shot and two others were injured while running away from the bullets, but Toledo said it was actually six people who were struck by the gunfire, with one other person suffering injuries while running away.

    All seven victims were transported to a hospital with nonlife-threatening injuries and are in stable condition, Toledo said.

    Police detained two people for questioning as they investigated whether the property was an AirBnB rental and whether the shooting might have been gang-related, Toledo said, adding that partygoers from as far away as the Inland Empire were in attendance.

    Police are continuing to investigate the shooting as they search for more possible suspects.

    "We have zero tolerance for disruptive behavior," AirBnB released a statement on the incident on Monday. "We have permanently banned these individuals from our platform, are fully supporting our host, and have offered local law enforcement our assistance. There have been over 300 million guest arrivals on Airbnb to date and negative incidents are extremely rare."
