Report Of Single Possible Gunshot Closes Canyon Briefly

Written by on July 14, 2018

Malibu Canyon Road was closed Thursday night.

One motorist reported hearing what sounded a single gunshot heard.

A sheriff’s helicopter and numerous units searched the canyon.

Nothing found.

Deputies on Friday said they were taking no chances … in light of the murder of a camper last month in the canyon.

There was a string of shooting reported more than a year ago.

They stopped a year ago.

Then … two reports of gunfire last June … one of them six days before the murder of Tristan Beaudette … in his tent.

Deputies have been careful to say they have not linked the incidents.

And last night … they are careful to say they cannot confirm that a gunshot was fired.

But again … the emphasize that only report came in .. and it was a report of one single loud noise.
