Hairdresser and brother to actor Mark Ruffalo, Scott Ruffalo died late Monday night after being shot in the head last week in what was reportedly described as an "execution-style" shooting.

"He is well-liked by everybody and knows everyone in Beverly Hills," Ruffalo's accountant James Leger told last week. "He was a guy who really wanted to do things right, as far as I was concerned. He is one of the easiest clients I have."

Earlier on Monday, Shaha Mishaal Adham, who was the prime suspect in the shooting, turned herself in for what was then an attempted murder. She was accompanied by Brian Scofield who was soon declared a "person of interest" in the case after police discovered there was a warrant out for his arrest from a previous traffic case.
