Mark Ruffalo's Brother Shot Himself Playing Russian Roulette

The suspect involved in the death of Mark Ruffalo's brother Scott Ruffalo claims he shot himself in the head playing Russian roulette. He died in the hospital due to his head shot injury. The family has issued a statement to the public:

Mark Ruffalo and his family deeply appreciate the outpouring of prayers and support during this most difficult time of the passing of Scott Ruffalo, beloved son, brother and husband," read a statement released Tuesday by the actor's rep. "The funeral service will be private."

The female suspect in the death of Scott Ruffalo who turned herself in on Monday says through her lawyer that he was on drugs playing Russian Roulette and shot himself in the head. I take it he lost?

“My client was a good friend of the victim and is very sad for the loss of his family. However, she played no role whatsoever in his accidental death,” Richards said.

Shaha Adham, 26, surrendered Monday after Beverly Hills police issued an arrest warrant for attempted murder...

Lt. Tony Lee with the Beverly Hills Police Department said he could not comment on Adham’s story, citing the ongoing criminal investigation.

Police knew to question Adham because she was on surveillance video at Ruffalo’s condominium along with Brian Scofield, 29, a “person of interest” in the case, Richards said.

Scott Ruffalo, a married hairdresser, died late Monday after he was taken off life support, one week after he was found with a gunshot wound to the head in his Beverly Hills condo. He is the kid brother of “You Can Count on Me” star Mark Ruffalo.

“I can confirm that my client was present when Mr. Ruffalo shot himself,” Richards said Tuesday. “She was picking up some keys.”

He said the gun belonged to Ruffalo and that Ruffalo was a known cocaine user who had used drugs and played with guns in the past in front of numerous witnesses.

Drugs will make you do the stupidest things in life, that's why I stay away from them. Is weed a drug? Damn it! Well in weeds defense, you can totally operate heavy machinery and capable of making wise decisions while high, all the other stuff on the streets, no way.

OK maybe not wise decisions because I can tear up a bag of Doritos within five minutes but hey, it's no Russian roulette.
