Two men wanted in stabbing of WiHi Head Football Coach

SALISBURY, Md. – Salisbury Police have released the identities of the two men wanted in the stabbing of Wicomico High School’s Head Football Coach Isaiah Taylor.

We’re told at around 1:40 a.m. last Friday, officers responded to TidalHealth Peninsula Regional to meet with a 27-year-old male victim who was suffering from slash and stab wounds that appeared to have been caused by a sharp-edged object. It was learned that a few minutes prior, the victim, which 47 ABC has confirmed to be Taylor, was at Brew River, where words were exchanged between him and other business patrons. Taylor was ultimately punched in the face and fell to the floor. As he stood up, he realized he had been assaulted with a knife.

Taylor was taken to TidalHealth Peninsula Regional by friends for treatment of his injuries, which were determined to be non-life-threatening.

During the course of the investigation, detectives were able to identify 22-year-old Altora Ware as the suspect who punched Taylor in the face. It was later determined that a second suspect was involved in the incident and assaulted Taylor with a knife while he was on the floor. That suspect has been identified as 24-year-old Tyree Showell.

Warrants have been obtained for both men, who police have not been able to locate. Ware is wanted for second-degree assault, while Showell is wanted for attempted first-degree murder and first and second-degree assault.

Anyone with information on either of these suspects is asked to contact SPD at 410-548-3165 or Crime Solvers at 410-548-1776.
