The ages of the boys all from the San Francisco Bay Area are 22-year-old Tiyon Farley of Antioch, 24-year-old Omar Taylor of Pittsburg, 23-year-old Ramon Hill Jr., 29-year-old Javin County and 19-year-old Oshiana Tompkins of Vallejo and Hercules.

Three were killed at a home in Orinda during the crowded Halloween party held at an Airbnb rental after gunfire erupted Thursday night. Two victims died at a hospital.

The home was rented by a woman who claimed it was for asthmatic family members escaping smoke from a wildfire in the region, but instead of the agreed-upon 12 people at the home, a party was hosted and more than a 100 people showed up.

A giant wildfire burning in Sonoma County about 60 miles (97 kilometers) north of Orinda earlier in the week forced tens of thousands of residents to evacuate.

More than 100 party-goers fled after shots rang out about a quarter to 11 p.m.

A 24-year-old man Armani Reynolds injured in the shooting at the Northern California Halloween party is in a coma.

According to the young man’s father, Romond Reynolds, his son was wounded during the shooting Thursday night at an Airbnb home in the San Francisco Bay Area community of Orinda. He said his son went with friends after apparently learning of the party on the internet.

No arrests have been made in the Halloween shooting and there’s no word on motive. Authorities found two guns at the Orinda scene.

Orinda police Chief David Cook says there’s no ongoing threat to the public, no risk to the community east of San Francisco because there is no reason to believe the suspect or suspects are from Orinda or remained in the area.

He said at least four people are injured but there may be others who went to hospitals on their own. Police do not have a precise count of the wounded because some were taken privately to hospitals and not by ambulances.

Reynolds says someone drove his son to the hospital and he received a call at about 11 p.m., roughly 15 minutes after police were summoned to the home.
