Kriston Price was indicted on the charges of aggravated murder, murder and felonious assault.

Shaker Heights police said Price called 911 just after 10 p.m. on July 26 and said he had just killed his roommate inside their apartment.

When officers arrived at the Colony Apartments on Van Aken Boulevard, paramedics found Landon Rogers, 24, suffering from a gunshot wound to the chest.

EMS transported him to an area hospital, but Rogers died from his injuries.

Price was arrested at the scene without incident.

Police said they were called to the apartment by Price earlier the same day, and Price told officers that his roommate had threatened him with a gun after they had argued over a shirt.

Price will be arraigned on Aug. 12.
