Attorney Marc Angelucci, known for his work on men's rights, was shot outside his California home on Saturday, according to the Palm Springs Desert Sun.
Angelucci, who was 52 years old, was found shot at around 4 p.m. in Cedarpines Park, a mountain community in San Bernardino County. No arrests have been made and the police are asking the public for information about the shootout.
The late lawyer is perhaps best known for his advocacy for men's rights, highlighted in Cassie Jaye's 2016 documentary "The Red Pill".

"The more I got to know him, the more I realized that he really was an angel on earth who had only kindness in his heart, was always honorable at work and was really the only person who could really make legal changes to State and federal levels on behalf of men and boys, "Jaye wrote in a statement on Angelucci's death on her website. "He's won so many cases that few would be willing to touch her and less willing to do pro bono, but he did it because it was the right thing to do."
Angelucci was the vice president of the National Coalition for Men and the president and founder of the Los Angeles chapter of the group. When he died, he was still actively fighting for men's rights in the legal system. From the desert sun:
The group that said Angelucci was killed at his home said Angelucci recently won a case with equal protection against the Selective Service Administration in which the draft registration was only kept for men. He previously won a case in California, Woods. V. Horton found it unconstitutional to exclude male victims of domestic violence from state funding for victim services.
"Marc was an incredibly generous man who, despite some personal health problems, lived in a small space so that he could donate millions of dollars of his time to the largely voluntary legal work in the name of men's rights and the real gender equality that is so urgently needed here will be country and this world, "said the National Coalition for Men in a statement.
