Seattle police release sketch of murder suspecton September 10, 2012 @ 2:20 pm (Updated: 3:46 pm - 9/10/12 )
They believe the man driving a silver 2002-2008 BMW Z4 convertible pulled up alongside Yancy Noll on 15th Ave. and NE 75th St. in the Maple Leaf neighborhood the night of Aug. 31.
Police found Noll, 42, slumped over in his car. He had been shot multiple times in the Friday night incident.
Police believe someone pulled up to the victim's car, and for reasons that may have been related to a road rage incident, fired multiple rounds into his vehicle, then fled the scene.
Investigators don't know what sparked the incident, but witnesses have identified the suspect as a well-dressed white or Asian male in his late 20's to 30's with dark, slicked-back hair.
Anyone with information about this incident or who may know the identity or whereabouts of the suspect or his vehicle is asked to call 911 or the Seattle Police Homicide Tip Line at (206) 233-5000.
"He loved adventures," says Jen Mallinger, a neighbor three doors down from Noll.
She says they met through a mutual friend. After hanging out at Noll's apartment building for a while, Mallinger decided that was where she wanted to make her home. She rented the next unit that became available.
"His door was always open, and his dog, Lola, would always just come bounding out when you walked out of your front door and greet you [...] He was just such a caring person. He always wanted to know how my day was," remembers Mallinger.
The Seattle Police Department has posted security video of the suspect vehicle moments after the shooting:
