Malibu Canyon Shootings : Senator Henry Stern hosts Public Safety Meeting for Santa Monica Mountains Safety

On Sunday, August 19th,  State Senator Henry Stern (and Malibu Local) will host a Public Safety Meeting at King Gillette Ranch to discuss measures being taken to improve the safety of the Santa Monica Mountains which has become a hot spot for violent crimes.

The murder of Tristan Beaudette on June 22nd ignited a firestorm of criticism of State Parks and local Law Enforcement for keeping a series of dangerous shooting incidents from the public.

It was revealed on social media when multiple victims came forward on The Local Malibu Facebook Page that the shootings spanned over a two year period.

A message from a resident the morning after the murder at Malibu Creek State Park revealed a community member’s Tesla was struck in the hood on Malibu Canyon at approximately the same time and in approximately the same area as Beaudette’s murder.

Shooting victim Melissa Tatangelo posted a video of the gunshot the hit her car on The Local Facebook page in the comments section regarding the Tesla shot in the same vicinity.

Since then, other victims have come forward and reports of shots fired have continued virtually every week since the murder rattling residents in the area to their core.

The good news is, local Law enforcement is leaving no stone unturned, rolling out multiple units, including ground and air support in almost every incident reported of shots fired in the area.

Lost Hills Sheriffs department is taking no chances and does have a well planned strategy in place that will hopefully lead to arrest of the person or persons responsible for these crimes. A reward for any information leading to the arrest of shooter or shooters has reached $35,000.

Lt. Rodney Moore of the Homicide division of the Los Angeles Sheriffs Department will be in attendance at Sunday’s meeting, however, because of the sensitive nature of the case, More will not be discussing details of the investigation.
