Detectives Arrest Suspect In Fatal Shooting Of Yancy Noll

Homicide detectives have arrested the man suspected of gunning down Yancy Noll at a north Seattle intersection last month.

Acting on a tip, SWAT officers and Homicide detectives served a warrant at a home in north Seattle early Friday morning—less than a mile from where Noll was shot and killed—and arrested a 30 year old suspect in the shooting.

On August 31st, Noll was driving home from work and stopped at NE 75th and 15th Avenue NE, facing northbound.  A man driving southbound in a silver BMW Z-4 pulled alongside Noll’s car and opened fire, killing Noll. The suspect then fled the scene southbound at a high rate of speed, running the red light at the intersection.

Detectives believe the shooting was the result of road rage.

The suspect has been booked into the King County Jail for Investigation of Murder.

Detectives have requested that the suspect’s name be withheld from the SPD Blotter until the suspect makes his first appearance in court.

This remains an active and on-going investigation.
