The father, Jeff Hall, was a neo-Nazi leader, who headed the California chapter of the National Socialist Movement.
Police responded to Hall’s home in Riverside Sunday morning at 4 a.m., where they found him dead from one bullet wound. They believe Hall’s 10-year-old son fired the shot.
Brian Levin, a teacher from the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at Cal State San Bernardino, described Jeff Hall as the biggest hater in the region.READ MORE: "Delta Is Very Serious" Tarzana Doctor Warns Delta Variant Is Bringing More COVID Patients Than He Can Count A neighbor, who fearing for his safety did not want to be identified, said he had issues with Hall’s white-supremacist colleagues. He was not alone.

She echoed the feeling of others in the neighborhood when she found out Hall was dead.
“I guess [I’m] relieved, but at the same time, for the time that I was living here I had no idea. So it’s just all of a shock,” she said.MORE NEWS: Heavy Rains Trigger Mudslide In El Dorado Burn Scar Near Big Bear
