Four people were injured after a shooting outside a home in Brampton that police say was used as an Airbnb.

Peel police were called to Julian Drive, near The Gore and Castlemore roads, just before 6 a.m. on Monday for reports of shots fired outside a residence.

When police arrived, they found three people with gunshot wounds.

A fourth person was also hurt but police said their injuries were later deemed to be not gunshot related.

A 28-year-old woman and a 26-year-old man were taken to a trauma centre. A 30-year-old man and a 32-year-old man were transported to a local hospital.

Their injuries are not considered to be life-threatening.

No suspect descriptions have been released.

On Thursday, police said the residence was an Airbnb rental property that was being used for a party. Police and bylaw officers were called to the home on Saturday and Sunday for noise complaints.

Police said that on both occasions bylaw officers laid charges under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act and Noise bylaw, and the gatherings were dispersed.

“The violence reported has no place in the Airbnb community, and we have removed the booking guest’s account from our platform,” an Airbnb spokesperson said in a statement to CityNews. “The safety of our community is our priority and we stand ready to support local authorities in their investigation.”

Airbnb adds it has taken a number of steps to try and limit parties from occurring on its plaform such as not allowing hosts to authorize parties or events in areas where current public health mandates prohibit such gatherings as well as banning so-called “party houses” throughout Canada.
