Acting on a tip, homicide detectives arrested Dihn Bowman Friday morning. Police say Bowman lived less than a mile from where the shooting took place.
"There's the huge swat car and all the guys, you see the guns out and I'm, like, peeking through the blinds trying to see," said neighbor Anela Deisler.
Police believe Bowman gunned down Yancy Noll, 42, an avid outdoorsman and wine steward for the QFC grocery chain, following a road rage incident on Aug. 31.
Investigators say Noll was driving home from work that day when he stopped at NE 75th and 15th Avenue NE, facing north. A man driving south in a silver BMW Z-4 convertible 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.
A surveillance camera captured the incident. Police earlier said the person who pulled up to Noll and fired was a well-dressed white or Asian man in his 20s or 30s with slicked-back dark hair. Investigators also said the suspect's car may have body damage and a broken passenger-side window.
Bowman has been booked into the King County Jail for investigation of murder.
Attorney John Henry Browne confirmed Friday evening that he is representing Bowman in the case. Bowman will make his first court appearance on Saturday.
