Ricardo called 911 after the incident and when cops arrived on the scene, he was arrested and booked for murder. He is currently in jail and bail has been set at $1 million. Joshua was taken to the hospital and pronounced dead.

    Sounds like self defense to me.

  • nomad

    Well, you weren’t there, so. I’m sure the witness and the cops know more about this than you or this article do.

  • shitdoneright

    37 with a roommate? I mean…

  • Nunyur_Biznezz

    If you break into my room that’s self defense.

  • Barb

    I agree, self defense

  • bruh

  • Olly Blew

  • Sandy McFarlane

    this is the most random thing i’ve heard all week lmao

  • TheSPazCORE .

    Sounds like self defense, how is this murder, manslaughter maybe. Doesn’t sound pre-meditated.

  • Jill Johnson

    Cost saving…

  • Jill Johnson

    At least it’s not premeditated…

  • Daburgess

    Sounds like you want the guy to be locked up and have the key thrown away. And if it really was self defense? If people are saying something positive in the hopes that it is, let them be. Don’t show up and spit on it. If you were in his shoes and knew the truth, you wouldn’t want people like you around.

    Simmer down. Nomad makes a very valid point. The article says almost nothing about what it likely to be a very involved story.

  • HashBrownJones

    well you knew the ninja was a Power Ranger why would you bust in the room threating his life

  • Maria E. Segura

    What is wrong of being 37 and have a roomate? Maybe they wanted to share expenses.

  • Maria E. Segura

    The only thing I know besides pay attention to the news on hand is that this guy is OHH MAN WHAT A SEXY HOT HANDSOME GOOD LOOKING GUY!!!!!!! Throw away the bedroom key for him and me hehe!!

  • nomad

    Assuming they arrested and charged him for no reason is stupid. I’ll reserve my judgment of him until after he gets the fair trial he deserves.
