Police say a 24-year-old man is dead after his roommate stabbed him over an argument about moving out.

The incident occurred around 4 p.m. Friday in the 900 block of East Broad Street in Athens, which is the 909 Broad Apartments. 

A spokesperson with the Athens-Clarke County Police Department says the victim got into an argument on the phone with his 21-year-old roommate about the roommate moving out with someone else.

When the victim arrived at the apartment, police say the two men fought and the victim was stabbed. He was taken to the hospital where he later died.

Police say no arrests have been made yet as they investigate the possibility of self-defense.

The names of the two men won't be released by authorities until their families are notified.
