Man charged with murder hunted people in California park

CALABASAS, Calif. (WVLT) -- Prosecutors say a man who faces various charges, including murder, used a California park to hunt visitors.

Anthony Rauda, 42, was already in jail for gun violations when he was charged in several shootings, including one that killed a father camping with his children in the area of Malibu Creek State Park.

Rauda was charged with one count of murder, 10 counts of attempted murder and five counts of second-degree burglary, the Los Angeles County district attorney's office said.

Prosecutors claim Rauda used the park as a hunting ground, targeting campers and motorists in shooting incidents dating back to Nov. 2016, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Rauda is accused of shooting and killing 35-year-old Tristan Beaudette while he was camping in a tent with his two daughters. CBS affiliate WREG reports the children were not injured. Rauda is charged with their attempted murders/

Prosecutors said on Monday that Rauda shot at vehicles in and around the area of the Calabasas state park, and a complaint lists people Rauda is charged with trying to kill.

Four days before Beaudette was shot, Rauda is accused of attempting to kill another man, Ian Kincaid. On July 22, 2017, Rauda reportedly shot at people identified as "Nathan G." and "Nicole K." with a shotgun.

On June 8, 2017, Rauda reportedly shot at Thomas Marshall, the complaint says.

Prosecutors believe that Rauda shot and wounded a man identified as Ernest Hill on Nov. 9, 2016 as he slept in a hammock in the Malibu Creek State Park area. On Nov. 3, Rauda is charged with shooting and injuring James Rogers.

WREG reports Rauda's motives remain unknown.

The criminal complaint also lists burglaries allegedly committed by Rauda, which authorities say were notable because only food was taken.
