BERKELEY, Calif. (KRON) — Hundreds of Berkeley High School students won’t be in class today. Instead, they will attend the funerals of their friends and classmates who have been killed at a birthday party at an Airbnb back on October 1.
The two killed were brothers Jazy and Angel Garcia, aged 15 and 17. The funeral and Jazy and Angel will begin at 8 a.m. this morning. The brothers were killed at a party at an Airbnb in Oakland. There were about 30 people at the party when the shooting happened.

The Airbnb where the shooting took place was located in the 950 block of Apgar Street. An Airbnb spokesperson confirmed that the party on the premises was “unauthorized”, meaning it took place without the “knowledge or consent” of the host or property owner.
Oakland police are still looking for three suspects who burst inside the home with guns and began shooting. Investigators say the incident was not gang-related. There is speculation that it could have been linked to an altercation that took place on or near the Berkeley High School campus which later spilled over to the fatal birthday party.
