A representative for Mark Ruffalo issued a statement Tuesday night, December 9 on behalf of the actor and his family concerning the death of Scott Ruffalo. "Mark Ruffalo and his family deeply appreciate the outpouring of prayers and support during this most difficult time of the passing of Scott Ruffalo, beloved son, brother and husband," part of the statement read.

The Ruffalo family, meanwhile, has asked that donations are made to Scott Ruffalo, Family Fund c/o Altman Greenfield & Selvaggi, CPA's 200 Park Avenue South 8th Floor New York, NY 10003.
Scott Ruffalo, 39, is the younger brother of actor Mark Ruffalo. He was found in critical condition at his apartment in Beverly Hills early on December 1 with a gunshot wound to the head. He lost his fight for life on Monday, December 8 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
Investigation in Scott's shooting is still undergoing. And while police haven't discussed a motive on the case, a suspect named Shaha Mishaal Adham turned herself into the authorities on early Monday morning before Scott was pronounced death. The 26-year-old lady was booked for suspicion of attempted murder, which has since been upgraded to murder. Being held without bail, she is scheduled to make a court appearance on Wednesday, December 10.
