Woman Calls Police From Outside Deputy's Home Saying She Plans To Kill Him

Micayla Martin was armed with a knife when she charged at one of the Albany police officers who responded to the call.

Albany, OR – A knife-wielding woman called police from outside a Linn County sheriff’s deputy’s home on Monday afternoon and told them she was going to kill him, according to police.

The incident began at shortly after 3 p.m., when 23-year-old Micayla Martin called police as she was walking in the area of Chinook and Southwest Marten Avenue, KPTV reported.

Martin, who was described as “distraught,” then told the dispatcher that she was in front of a deputy’s home and that she was going to kill him, according to KEZI.

Police confirmed that the knife-wielding woman was outside the deputy’s residence, and said that she wanted police to shoot her, KPTV reported.

Officers arrived at the scene and found Martin standing out on the sidewalk, gripping the knife.

When Albany Police Officer Kyle Libra attempted to approach her from approximately a half-block away, Martin charged at him with the blade, KEZI reported.

Officer Libra fired a less-lethal 40mm impact weapon, hitting Martin and causing her to fall to the ground, police said.

She was within 10 feet of the officer when he fired the round, according to KPTV.

Martin tried to scramble back onto her feet, at which point she was tased, KEZI reported.

An officer was then able to get the knife away from her, and Martin was taken into custody.

She was transported to Samaritan Albany General Hospital with minor injuries, where she also underwent a mental health evaluation, KEZI reported.

Martin was then booked into the Linn County Jail on three counts of attempted assault on a peace officer, three counts of first-degree attempted assault, attempted murder, five counts of menacing, and unlawful use of a weapon.

In a press release, the Albany Police Department praised the officers for showing such restraint during the terrifying ordeal.

“This was an extraordinary event where our officers used good judgment and tactics to avoid using lethal force in this situation,” the department said, according to the Lebanon Express.

How well did the deputy know this woman before the violent incident?

And he's surfaced once again (@Burgers Allday), ugh thought we were rid of him and his moronic comments, I guess not? Who said he knew her? She's a nut case, a whacko, deranged individual, nothing in the story said they had a history. Quit trying to read into the story and make the LEO look bad. SHE WAS WRONG, NOT HIM!

How come the fatty looks so happy in the mug shot?

Like she's proud of showing up and threatening an officer and then getting arrested...

And some guy is probably plugging that fatty thinking she is normal..

Just one more entitled self absorbed libtard with delusions of grandeur
