LOS ANGELES (KTLA) -- A man who is already in custody in connection with a string of burglaries in the Malibu Creek State Park area, has now been charged with fatally shooting a father who was camping in the park in late June and other shootings, authorities announced Monday.

Anthony Rauda, 42, was charged with one count of murder, 10 counts of attempted murder and five counts of second-degree murder, Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office officials said.

Rauda allegedly opened fire on campers and motorists dating back to November 2016. In one of those shootings, he wounded a man who was sleeping in a hammock in the Malibu State Park area, and less than a week later, he allegedly fired into a vehicle, officials said.

On June 22, Rauda is accused of shooting and killing Tristan Beaudette, 35, while he was camping in a tent with his two daughters in the state park. The children were not injured.

Prosecutors believe Rauda shot into three different vehicles on separate occasions in 2017, and shot at a Tesla on Las Virgenes Road on June 2018.
