(Newser) – The death of actress Mia Farrow's brother has been ruled a suicide. Police say Patrick  Farrow, a 66-year-old sculptor, shot himself in his Vermont gallery Monday night. Police initially classified Farrow's death as suspicious, but later said the medical examiner's ruling of suicide was consistent with evidence found at the scene. He and Mia are the children of director John Farrow and actress Maureen O'Sullivan.

"The family of Patrick Farrow is grieving the tragic loss of their beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, and uncle, who sadly chose to take his own life," said Mia Farrow's manager, Laura Berwick. "They greatly appreciate the support of their friends during this difficult time."
