It's official: The death of Mark Ruffalo's brother has been ruled a homicide.

The L.A. County Coroner's Office has determined that someone else shot Scott Ruffalo in the head, spokesman Craig Harvey told the Associated Press.

Beverly Hills police arrested, but later released, Shaha Mishaal Adham, 26. At the time, the woman's attorney claimed that Scott shot himself during a game of Russian roulette.

Scott, 39, was shot Dec. 1 and died a week later. Police have not revealed a motive in the case.
