Wake County Deputy Shot, Killed Woman Armed With Knife

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- A North Carolina woman is dead after authorities say she charged sheriff's deputies with a knife.

The Wake County Sheriff's Office said 33-year-old Misty Michelle Mullins was shot after breaking into a second home around midday Friday. Deputies responded to a 911 call that a woman had broken into a previous home and threatened the resident with a garden rake.

Three officers say they entered the second house and tried to subdue Mullins with stun guns as she charged at them with a knife or a machete. Authorities say Deputy Gabriel Romero then shot and killed Mullins.

A standing protective order barred Mullins from one of the homes.
