Residents Hear Gunshots in Studio City Home Reported to be an Airbnb Rental

(KNX 1070) - People living in an upscale Studio City neighborhood nestled in a hillside were jolted awake by gunfire Tuesday and they say the property involved is an Airbnb rental

They say they're fed up. Residents say ever since the home on Dona Evita Drive was turned into an Airbnb property they’ve had problems, mostly with loud parties and traffic, but this time, there were gunshots.

The Los Angeles Police Department responded and detained some people at the home but tell KNX there are no victims.

As of now, there are no suspects in the shooting. Meantime, we contacted a man named Gene described as the Airbnb Superhost of the property, who was very apologetic. He tells KNX he has asked Airbnb to pull the home off the listings.
