Jeff Russell Hall, an "avowed" white supremacist and Neo-Nazi, was apparently shot to death by his 10-year-old son early Sunday morning at his home in Riverside, Calif. Police say they believe it was an "intentional act."

Hall—who ran for a spot on his local water board last year—was the "southwestern regional director of the National Socialist Movement," according to The Los Angeles Times. Police were called to his residence around 4 a.m. on Sunday; they found him dying of a gunshot wound. After speaking with his family, they arrested his 10-year-old son on a homicide charge. No motive has been given. Hall lost his bid for the water board, probably because he said things like "I want a white nation. I don't hide what I am, and I don't water that down."
