Suspect arrested in Noll shooting (UPDATES, PHOTOS)

Friday morning, September 21, Seattle Police Department homicide detectives arrested a man suspected of the road rage shooting death of Yancy Noll on August 31.

From the SPD Blotter:

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.

The post goes on to say that detectives are withholding the suspect’s name until his first appearance in court.

Thank you to Adam Merrill for the heads-up.

    It’s rather chilling that the suspect lived so close to the scene, a park and a school.

    Also, it doesn’t help the suspect’s case that he was a proficient marksman:

    This was his own video of him placing first last year at a Turkey Shoot, sobering in retrospect:

    Not trying to draw an association to the lawful use of firearms, which that event was. But he had a responsibility to not use a firearm in a road rage incident, that’s all.

  2. RIP Yancy Noll and the virginity of Dinh Bowman’s derriere.
