A 26-year-old man was stabbed to death Monday evening during an apparent dispute between roommates, police said.

Following the stabbing, which happened in the Northwest Side's Albany Park neighborhood, police took the man's roommate into custody in connection with the slaying.

At 8:24 p.m., Ochoa-Deleon was pronounced dead, having been stabbed multiple times, according to the medical examiner's office.
