Three days after a father was found shot to death during a Southern California camping trip, another camper reported a shooting at the same Malibu campground.
According to CBS News, a man reported finding gunshots on his parked vehicle at Malibu Creek State Park on Monday. There were no injuries reported.
Early Friday morning, Tristan Baudette of Irvine, California, was found dead in or near his tent at the campground. He is believed to have been shot in the chest in front of his two daughters, ages 2 and 4, who were unharmed.
Authorities have not named any suspects and are continuing to seek a motive for the senseless shooting.
Baudette, 35, was a scientist who most recently worked at the pharmaceutical company Allergan. He had reportedly been planning to move to the Bay area with his family. Baudette’s wife Erica Wu had not joined the family on the camping trip because she was reportedly studying for an exam.
A woman who had been to the same campground last year told CBS News that she found bullet holes on her car during a January 2017 camping trip.
Los Angeles County Deputy Sheriff Wally Bracks told the news station that authorities do not believe the shooting incidents are linked.
“So they are aware there were other shootings. However, it doesn’t seem to be related,” Bracks said.
Anyone with information is urged to call the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500.
