It has been determined that Scott Ruffalo, the younger brother of actor Mark Ruffalo, died of "an accidental shooting" and further details on the case will be made public on December 10.

It's official, the death of 's brother Scott Ruffalo has been ruled as "an accidental shooting". Thus, Shaha Mishaal Adham, who is determined as suspect in the case, has been cleared of charge and was released from jail.

Shaha's legal attorney Ronald Richards has confirmed his client's jail release, explaining that he presented evidence to detectives at a five-hour court hearing on Tuesday night, December 9 that proved Shaha wasn't guilty in the case. Ronald insisted Shaha was just a witness who fled in the self-inflicted shooting death of 39-year-old Scott.

Ronald, furthermore, argued that Shaha went to Scott's apartment on the day he was shot in the head simply to retrieve her car keys. She was shocked when finding Scott's body and decided to flee the scene. "That was a mistake, but it doesn't make her a murderer," Richards tells E! News. "It was really like a horrible nightmare. She regrets not calling the police or an ambulance, but she was under high stress."

On top of all, there will be no charges to be pursued against Shaha. "There will be no criminal filing at this time regarding this matter, and Shaha Mishaal Adham will hopefully rebuild her tarnished reputation," Ronald says in a statement.
