Story by Woodall's Campground Management

Three claims for damages totaling “in excess of $90 million” have been filed by the family of a man who was fatally shot while camping with his children at Malibu Creek State Park last June, officials confirmed Wednesday (Jan. 16).

The claims were filed on Dec. 21 on behalf of Tristan Beaudette’s widow, Erica Wu, and their young daughters, according to the Los Angeles (L.A.) County Chief Executive Office. The filings name the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department, California State Parks police and the state Parks and Recreation Commission, a manager with the office told KTLA.

Each claim lists prospective damages of $30 million for a total “in excess of $90 million,” the official said.

Between November 2016 and last June, a man known to have been sleeping in or around the state park allegedly opened fire seven times on cars and campsites in what Sheriff Alex Villanueva described as “all random, targets of opportunity.”
