Beverly Hills police are searching for two "persons of interest" – a man and a woman – in the shooting of Scott Ruffalo, the hairstylist brother of actor Mark Ruffalo.

The pair, identified as Brian Scofield and Shaha Mishaal Adham (photos below), are both wanted for questioning in the attempted murder, police announced Thursday.

Scofield, 29, is approximately 5'11" and weighs around 180 lbs., according to police. He has brown hair and brown eyes. Mishaal Adham, 26, is approximately 5'3" tall and weighs approximately 103 lbs., say police. According to a description from authorities, it is also possible that the mole above her lip has been surgically removed.

Shortly after 1 a.m. Monday, Beverly Hills police responded to assist a person who fell on North Palm Drive, outside the condo where Scott Ruffalo lived.

Officers discovered that the victim, Ruffalo, 39, had been shot in the head.

According to sources, Ruffalo is in very serious condition at a Los Angeles hospital, where he has been regularly visited by his brother Mark.

Anyone with information about either Scofield or Adham is asked to call Beverly Hills police at 310-288-2656
