The Malibu/Lost Hills division of Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department responded to the call at approximately 11:30 a.m., along with the Malibu Search and Rescue Team, who aided in the body recovery. Allegedly the victim was pronounced dead at the scene.
Lieutenant Scott Hoglund told the Palisadian-Post that “little information” is known so far, however he was able to confirm that the victim had “multiple gunshots” and that “it appears the cause of death was from gunshot wounds.”
