Devonne is a Story Arc on the HBO drama The Wire, portrayed by Tiara Harris.
Devonne is a young woman used by the Barksdale Organisation as bait for Marlo Stanfield. She is first mentioned by Avon as a means to get close to Marlo Stanfield. She catches Marlo's attention in a club and he approaches her. Marlo checks that she is there with friends and declines both drinking and dancing. Instead they leave the club together. After they have sex in his car Devonne persuades him to meet her again the following day. Marlo phones Devonne to arrange a meeting and begins to feel suspicious. He assigns Chris Partlow to deal with Devonne to avoid possible problems in the future. Snoop sits in the restaurant Marlo arranged to meet Devonne at and recognizes a Barksdale soldier buying a large quantity of food and taking it to a nearby SUV. Snoop reports in to Partlow. Partlow observes Devonne receiving a signal from the car figuring it was a trap. Marlo and Chris Partlow set up a night time ambush for Devonne. When she emerges from her home Marlo shoots her twice (once in each breast) and when she has fallen fires a third bullet through her mouth. Chris assures Marlo that the murder was necessary.
