Family members are heartbroken and can’t imagine their life without Tristan. They set up a GoFundMe page to help Tristan’s wife and small children.

The post reads:

Tristan was out doing something he adored in life, being in the outdoors with his two young girls. His wife Erica was preparing to take an exam the next morning. This was their final step before taking well-deserved time off together as a family prior to their relocation to new jobs in the Bay Area. They were about to embark on a new chapter in their lives. And then it was all taken away, by a fatal gun shot in the middle of the night, in front of his two young daughters.

Altogether, there were more than 60 campsites in the location of the shooting, and all of them were occupied at that time. It is a popular camping place outside Los Angeles, which covers around 8,000 acres.
