Ricardo Medina Jr.: Power Ranger Murdered Roommate With Sword, Cops Say

Ricardo Medina Jr., who played the red Power Ranger on TV, allegedly impaled and killed his roommate with a sword on Saturday.

According to TMZ, L.A. County Sheriff's deputies in Palmdale, California, were called to Medina's house after a fight broke out between him and roommate Joshua Sutter.

Authorities said that during the argument Medina, 36, and his girlfriend retreated to his room and locked the door behind them. Sutter, also 36, reportedly forced his way into the bedroom, at which time Medina ran him through with the sword. Medina's girlfriend, who remains unidentified, apparently witnessed the stabbing.

It was Medina himself who then called 911. When law enforcement arrived on the scene, Sutter was rushed to a hospital, and soon declared dead.

Medina was arrested and "booked for murder," wrote TMZ. His bail was said to be set at $1 million.

In addition to playing the Red Ranger in 2002 on "Power Rangers Wild Force," Medina also played Dekker on "Power Rangers Samurai." E! Online reported that he also had guest roles in "ER" and "CSI: Miami."

Fellow Power Ranger and close friend Jason Faunt told ABC that he is "shocked" by the alleged incident.

"I was just with him a couple of months ago and he seemed great. He seemed like himself," Faunt said. "You're just shocked by it cause you think he's not capable of that. He seems too gentle of a person to be that way."

"He is a great friend and a great client. It's something I can't even conceive. I don't see that in him. He was a very helpful guy and great with his dog. It's such a shock," said Gar Lester, Medina's former agent.

Medina is scheduled to make a court appearance on Tuesday.
