The shooting of Scott Ruffalo has been ruled an accident by authorities and the suspect in custody has been released.
Attorney Ronald Richards said he presented evidence to detectives during a five-hour meeting Tuesday night that proved Adham did not shoot Scott Ruffalo early Dec. 1. He said Ruffalo’s gunshot wound to the head was self-inflicted — that Adham was essentially a witness to a game of Russian Roulette.
“This was an accidental shooting by someone that plays with guns,” Richards said. He credited police with being “more than impartial with the facts.”
Richards said Adham, a friend of Scott Ruffalo’s, had gone to the hairdresser’s condo to retrieve keys to her sport utility vehicle, then fled the scene.
“A series of wrong decisions starting with her not staying at the scene of the shooting caused an incredible chain reaction of stupidity and bad luck,” Richards said. He said she received poor legal advice from other attorneys before her surrender. (Yahoo)
Well I guess this is sort of good news. Saying someone died by accident sounds better than someone died by being shot in the head.
