Man shot dead while camping with two young daughters

Tristan Beaudette, 35, died after he suffered a gunshot wound to his upper torso at a campsite in Malibu Creek State Park in Calabasas in the early hours of Friday morning.

Authorities say Beaudette was dead at the scene after deputies responded to a call about shots fired about 4:45 a.m.

The girls, who are 2 and 4 years old, weren't hurt.

While at least one woman has come forward to say her vehicle was struck by gunfire when she visited the Calabasas park previous year, the Sheriff's Department on Monday said it does not believe there was a connection between the two incidents.

Detective Rodney Moore of the sheriff's department said no motive has been determined. "We are not investigating this as a suicide at this point". He said the other sites were likely occupied when the shooting happened.

Family and friends told CBS that Beaudette was a scientist for a pharmaceutical company, and his children were "his greatest pride and joy".

Michigan Basketball: Could Moe Wagner be the Lakers Kevin Love?
The Celtics are wary of trading the No. 3 pick in the NBA Draft two years ago - Jaylen Brown - for a one-year rental of Kawhi. Youngmisuk didn't just insinuate that Wagner is the type of athletic big that the Lakers are looking for.

"The theory we are working with is he was shot inside the tent", the officer said.

Malibu Creek State Park is a vast playground for outdoor enthusiasts and a spectacular backdrop used in movies and television shows. It is known for its scenic rock pools and as the location for the TV series "M*A*S*H".

The page said the family was planning to move north to the Bay Area to take new jobs.

According to reports, Tristan took the girls camping so his wife, a doctor, could study for an exam. In another, he and his family are settled on the beach in the process of roasting s'mores; Beaudette has one arm around his wife's camp chair, the other around his older daughter, who is seated in a miniature purple-and-teal camp chair for kids.

"Words can not express the absolute devastation and sorrow we feel from the loss of someone so dear to our family", the page said.

"You were admired by so many for your devotion to your wife and two daughters", the page said. "We are gathering evidence".
