Police in Beverly Hills released 26-year-old Shaha Mishaal Adham last night following a five-hour meeting held between her attorney and detectives regarding the shooting death of actor Mark Ruffalo's brother Scott. Evidence presented indicated that the shooting was the result of gunplay. According to, Adham's lawyer, Ronald Richards "said Ruffalo's gunshot wound to the head was self-inflicted - that Adham was essentially a witness to a game of Russian Roulette." Scott Ruffalo, a local hairdresser, died late Monday night, a week after he was brought to the hospital following what was initially described as "an execution-style" shooting.
