An argument at an Annapolis Thanksgiving dinner ended with a 27-year-old woman stabbing her half brother in the neck with a serving fork, police said.

Police said the stabbing took place in the 1100 block of Madison St. Shenika Allsup, 27, and Deonte Antionio Wallace, 23, had been arguing. When the spat escalated, she used the fork as a weapon, according to a police report.


An officer who responded found Wallace in the parking lot of an apartment building, clutching his neck and wearing a bloodied white T-shirt, the report shows. The officer found two wounds in the base of Wallace's neck; another officer found bloodstains inside a nearby apartment.

Wallace was transported to Anne Arundel Medical Center with injuries that were not deemed to be life-threatening.

Allsup was arrested and charged with first-degree assault, second-degree assault and reckless endangerment, and was being held on a $1 million bond, police said.

In an unrelated holiday incident, Baltimore police have identified a man shot and killed in the Franklintown neighborhood Thursday as 23-year-old Antoine Ellis.

Officers responded to the 2000 block of Forest Park Ave. for reports of gunfire shortly after 2 p.m. and found Ellis suffering multiple gunshot wounds to the head, police said. He was taken to an area hospital but died of his wounds at 2:40 p.m.

Police believe Ellis was shot by an unknown person while standing near a bench on a baseball field and are continuing to investigate.

Online court records show that Ellis lived on the 2900 block of Brighton St., on the opposite side of Gwynns Falls/Leakin Park from where he was killed.
