Scott Ruffalo Has Died

Scott Ruffalo, brother of actor Mark Ruffalo, has died, after suffering a gunshot wound to the head last week, ABC News reports.

Ruffalo, 39, was found in his condo on North Palm Drive in Beverly Hills on Monday, December 1. He passed away at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles late Monday night, according to Beverly Hills Police Sgt. Renato Moreno.

Police are still investigating the shooting of Ruffalo, a hairdresser who is survived by his wife, Lulu. Yesterday Shaha Mishaal Adham, 26, was arrested on an attempted murder warrant related to the case. Brian Scofield, 29, also identified as a person of interest by authorities, is being held as well. Adham’s court date is tentatively scheduled for tomorrow.

According to Mark Ruffalo’s publicist, Jessica Kolstad, the actor had been at his brother’s bedside in the hospital since the shooting.


According to TMZ, Shaha Mishaal Adham, the woman who surrendered to Beverly Hills Police in connection with the gunshot death of Scott Ruffalo, is claiming that the hairdresser brother of actor Mark Ruffalo shot himself in the head while playing a game of Russian roulette.

According to the site, Adham is claiming she arrived at Ruffalo’s condo to reclaim a Land Rover she had loaned to him.

Allegedly, after Ruffalo put the gun to his head and fired, Adham fled the home and contacted Brian Scofield, her boyfriend, who in turn called 911.

No word yet on if investigators believe Shaha’s version of events.
