He was shot early Friday in his tent, his 2-year-old and 4-year-old daughters looked on in horror.

A Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department spokesman said Monday that the researchers knew about the recording of reports.

“Detectives are aware, there have been other shootings in the vicinity of the location in the past, but there is no evidence that suggests this incident is related to any previous shootings in the area of the location,” the statement said.

The station also reported that there was a report of a man shot in the park in 2016 and a report of a man who says that his car was struck by a bullet around 4:30 pm, Monday.

Another station, KTLA-TV reported that in an interview Tatangelo, said the bullet that was fired at her car barely missed her.

She said state park police took a report and recovered a bullet found in the car.

Tatangelo told the station they now believe that someone could target innocent people.

“I think so,” she said.
