A Saudi billionaire's daughter, accused of killing actor Mark Ruffalo's younger brother, has told police he shot himself in the head during a drug-fueled game of Russian roulette, reports the New York Daily News. Shaha Adham, 26, surrendered to Beverly Hills police Monday, the day Scott Ruffalo was taken off life support. A surveillance video shows her visiting the married hairdresser's condo before the shooting.

"My client was present when Mr. Ruffalo shot himself," said her attorney.  "However, she played no role whatsoever in his accidental death. The shooting was a result of the victim's chronic playing of Russian Roulette.  My client was a good friend of the victim and is very sad" for his family's loss.
