Cops say a man known best for portraying the red Power Ranger murdered his roommate during a fight at their Los Angeles apartment Sunday.

Ricardo Medina, Jr., who played the red Ranger in several of the franchise films and television shows, was reportedly arguing with his roommate with his roommate at their apartment in Green Valley on Sunday afternoon when things turned physical.

According to the LAPD, which confirmed the strange story in a press release, Medina "retreated to his bedroom with his girlfriend," but the victim, Joshua Sutter, "followed them and forced the door open."

Then Medina allegedly stabbed Sutter once in the stomach "with a sword kept next to the bedroom door."

Sutter was transported to a hospital and pronounced dead.

Medina was reportedly booked on murder charges and has not posted his $1 million bail.
