ALBANY – An Albany man is in custody after police say he stabbed his roommate to death early Friday morning.

Officers responded around 1 a.m. to a residence on Clinton Street between Third and Fourth avenues. They found 56-year-old Rodney McClean with multiple stab wounds. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say 59-year-old Jimmie Lee Allen stabbed him during an altercation.
