Two men were slain yesterday in separate incidents, one of them a Forest Park resident fatally stabbed while stopped at a traffic light as he drove a moving van.
City police said the stabbing was domestic-related. A warrant was issued today for the arrest of the victim's ex-girlfriend, Juanita Felicia Brown, 31, of the 2700 block of Mosher St. in West Baltimore.
Homicide Detective Richard Garvey said the victim, Ulysses Harris Jr., 34, of the 4400 block of Vesta Ave., was driving an empty rental van in the 2900 block of Baker St. about 5:30 p.m. when he stopped for a traffic light at Poplar Grove Street.
In the van with Harris were his current girlfriend and her 4-year-old daughter. Because they are witnesses, police declined to name them.
Garvey said that as Harris waited for the light to change, a woman approached the van on the driver's side, stabbed Harris several times in the chest and fled.
Garvey said Harris was able to drive to the 2700 block of Baker St. before collapsing.
The victim was taken by ambulance to the University of Maryland Medical Center, where he died about 6:30 p.m.
Garvey said Harris' current girlfriend and her daughter were not injured.
Brown is being charged with first-degree murder, Garvey said.
Harris, who lived with his mother, reportedly broke up with the suspect a short time ago.
In East Baltimore, police officers responding to a report of a shooting in the 1400 block of N. Bond St. shortly after 7 p.m. found the body of Ernest Watson, 47, of the 400 block of N. Belnord Ave. in East Baltimore.
Detective Donald Warden said Watson died from two gunshot wounds to the back.
Warden said there were no witnesses to the slaying and the motive is unknown.
The victim's fingerprints were taken at the medical examiner's office to identify him.
