White Supremacist Running for CA Office Shot Dead in Home

RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP/THE BLAZE) — A California white supremacist who drew widespread attention when he ran for a regional water board seat was shot to death in his home, and his young son has been booked for investigation of murder, a police spokesman said Monday.

Jeff Russell Hall, 32, was killed early Sunday in the house he shared with his wife and five children, all of whom were home at the time. Hall died of a single gunshot wound fired “by a known assailant,” according to a Riverside County coroner’s office news release.

The weapon was described only as a handgun and police Lt. Ed Blevins refused to divulge the caliber of the weapon or the identity of the gun owner. Blevins said he was awaiting autopsy results.
