— Authorities say one man is dead and another is wounded after they got into a knife fight inside their Albany-area apartment.

Police in the city of Watervliet tell local media outlets that the two roommates each pulled knives during the fight that broke out around 4 p.m. Sunday in their second-floor apartment.

Officials say one of the men suffered multiple stab wounds to his upper torso and was pronounced dead at the scene. The other was taken to Albany Medical Center Hospital. The extent of his injuries and his condition haven’t been released.

Neither man’s name has been released by police Monday morning.

A window was broken during the brawl and a trail of dried blood could be seen extending down the front of the home’s siding.
