Mark Ruffalo’s brother’s death ruled a homicide

Mark Ruffalo’s brother Scott did NOT die playing Russian Roulette. According to a statement from the Los Angeles County Coroner’s, his death is being ruled a homicide. The AP reports:

Coroner’s spokesman Craig Harvey says an autopsy determined that someone shot 39-year-old Scott M. Ruffalo in the head. He was found with a gunshot wound early Dec. 1 and died a week later at a hospital after being released from life support.
Police do not have any suspects in custody and had not been notified of the coroner’s determination by Wednesday evening, Sgt. Michael Publicker said. He said the agency had no further statements on the case.

Fantastic stuff here. Nothing like being told your brother killed himself playing Russian Roulette only to find out “Just kidding!” Someone shot him and the police stopped looking for suspects a week ago. To make things up to Mark Ruffalo, I hear the cops are going to back over his wife with a patrol car – then give him a parking ticket. Fa la la la la!
