Deputies stopped the vehicle in the 8100 block of Harborview Road. 3 people were found in the vehicle.

The driver and back seat passenger said the front seat passenger was the shooter. The front seat passenger was identified as Shawn Dale Noisey, age 38, of Blaine. A criminal history check at the time showed Noisey has 14 prior felony convictions.

During a consented search of the vehicle, deputies located a loaded semi-automatic handgun under the seat and a box containing 28 rounds of 9-millimeter ammunition on the front seat passenger floor. The driver told deputies Noisey handed him the gun to stash under the driver’s seat before being stopped.
