(Newser) – A leading white supremacist has been shot to death at his California home and his 10-year-old son has been booked on suspicion of homicide. Jeff Russell Hall, 32, was the regional director of the National Socialist Movement and came to national attention last year when he ran for a post on the local water board. The son was taken into custody after police interviewed Hall's wife and four other children, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Police say the shooting was intentional, but a motive hasn't been determined, reports the Daily Bulletin. Neighbors complain they were verbally abused and felt threatened by the family, who held a Halloween party last year where a swastika flag was flown from the house and guests wore KKK hoods. "Honestly, I feel like it's over," Juan Trejo, who lives across the street from Hall's home, tells the Press-Enterprise. "It was scary here. Hopefully, we'll never see any of them again."
