Between William Balfour and now the Scott Ruffalo shooting, it’s been an amazing and tragic couple of weeks in terms of violent crime in the celeb gossip world.

Beverly Hills police announced Thursday that two “persons of interest” have been ID’d in their investigation into the shooting of Mark Ruffalo’s younger brother, 39-year-old Scott Ruffalo – what officials now call an attempted murder.

In a press release issued by police department spokesman Lt. Tony Lee, authorities say that they’re looking to question a man by the name of Brian Scofield and a woman named Shaha Mishaal Adham in connection with the shooting.
