HOUSTON, Tex. — A distraught woman wielding a knife called for police to take her life early Sunday, charging at officers inside the Houston Police Department's downtown headquarters, officials said.
Crying out, "Shoot me, kill me. I want to end this," the woman, identified Sunday night as Marnell Villarreal, 42, lunged at the officers shortly after 2 a.m. inside the lobby of HPD's main office at 1200 Travis, police said.
