From murder to self-inflicted wound back to murder. The coroner has ruled the death of actor Mark Ruffalo's brother to be murder, which conflictsearlier reports that he was playing russian roulette. But one of the original suspect's lawyers dispute that. "The only two eye witnesses to the shooting saw the same thing, a gunshot wound to the left side of the head, while one of them saw him pull the trigger,"Attorney Ronald Richards wrote in an e-mail. "They saw the gun in his left hand after the shot was fired." Shaha Mishaal Adham, who was arrested for the shooting was released after Ruffalo died.
