Two young girls, 2 and 4, witnessed in horror as their father was shot and killed while on a camping trip in Southern California, according to reports.

Tristan Beaudette, 35, of Irvine, Calif., was bleeding from a chest wound when deputies found him in a tent early Friday at a Malibu Creek State Park campsite.

“Tristan was out doing something he adored in life being in the outdoors with his two young girls,” a GoFundMe page for the Beaudette family says.

He took the girls camping so his wife, a doctor, could study for an exam, according to the reports.

He worked as a scientist for a pharmaceutical company and he and his wife were about to move to the Bay Area.

“We are working this as a homicide at this point,” Lt. Rodney Moore of the L.A. County Sheriff's office told The Los Angeles Times.

The paper reported that the area where the shooting unfolded is frequented by hikers and day trekkers. »
