Suspect in the murder of Yancy Noll

SEATTLE (AP) — Police have arrested a suspect in the shooting of a man at a north Seattle intersection that detectives believe was the result of road rage.

A tip led police Friday to a home less than a mile away from the shooting scene in the Roosevelt neighborhood, and homicide detectives and a SWAT team arrested a 30-year-old suspect. He’s been jailed for investigation of murder.

Police believe he was driving a BMW convertible that pulled alongside a car driven by 43-year-old Yancy Noll on Aug. 31 as he was returning home from his job as a wine steward. Multiple shots hit Noll who died in his car.

The suspect sped away.

Noll’s slaying was the 23rd in Seattle this year, three more than in all of 2011.
