ORINDA, Calif. (KGO) -- The Orinda City Council is moving forward with an emergency ban of some short-term rentals.
The action is in response to the Halloween night shooting at an Airbnb that left five people dead.

The council heard from 50 people during a standing-room-only meeting last night. Many speakers urged the council not to ban all short-term rentals.
The emergency ordinance will prohibit un-hosted short-term rentals for 45 days while the city works on updating existing rules. Un-hosted means the homeowner is not on site.
