Actor Mark Ruffalo's 39-year-old hairdresser brother, Scott, is reportedly said to be "clinging to life" after being shot "execution-style" on Monday, according to the New York Post. The incident happened at 1:30 a.m. on North Palm Drive, but police are not giving out any more details as the investigation continues. In fact, Beverly Hills Police will not release the identity of the victim or admit that anyone is shot.

But a spokeswoman for Mark Ruffalo said the two brothers are together in an Los Angeles-area hosptial. "I don't have any further comment because there is an ongoing police investigation," she said.
