Suspect arrested road-rage slaying of Yancy Noll

Seattle police have made an arrest in the Aug. 31 road-rage killing of Yancy Noll.

Noll, 43, was in his car at 15th Avenue Northeast and Northeast 75th Street around 7:26 p.m. when a silver BMW Z4 convertible pulled up next to him, according to police. The BMW driver fired several shots at Noll, according to police.

SWAT and homicide detectives served a warrant at his home in North Seattle this morning— less than a mile from where Noll was killed — and arrested a 30-year-old man, according to Seattle police. Officers found the silver BMW was parked in the garage, according to a source close to the investigation.

Police received dozens of tips in the case.

Seattle police Deputy Chief Nick Metz said that he’s “proud of our officers and detectives for following up on every lead” in the Noll case.

“The community stepped up. People in this city are getting fed up with the violence going on,” Metz said.

Most recently, Noll, was working as the wine steward at the QFC store on Broadway in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood.

Mike Noll, cousin of the slain man, said he was contacted by Seattle police today.

“I’m thanking Seattle for their help. All the citizens tips, all the media coverage, it all worked. The family is doing great,” said Mike Noll from his home in Ohio.
