Blaine man with 14 prior felonies arrested for Birch Bay drive-by shooting


Whatcom County Sheriff’s Office (WCSO) deputies arrested and booked a Blaine man into Whatcom County Jail June 8 suspected of firing multiple gunshots in the 4600 block of Alderson Road June 7 around 10:30 p.m. 

Shawn Dale Noisey, 38, of Blaine, was arrested on suspicion of drive-by shooting and second-degree unlawful possession of a firearm, WCSO spokesperson Deb Slater told The Northern Light. Noisey has 14 prior felony convictions.

Residents in the Alderson Road area reported hearing four to five gunshots in rapid succession and observed a silver Subaru Impreza speed away westbound on the road after stopping and firing another shot, Slater wrote. The vehicle was later spotted near the intersection of Parkland Drive and Alderson Road while deputies were interviewing witnesses. 

Deputies stopped the vehicle in the 8100 block of Harborview Road and learned that Noisey, who was in the front passenger seat, was the shooter, Slater said. Deputies located a loaded semi-automatic handgun under the driver’s seat and a box of ammunition on the front seat passenger floor. According to Slater, the driver told deputies Noisey handed them the gun to stash under the driver’s seat before being stopped.

Noisey was under active supervision by the Washington State Department of Corrections and not legally allowed to possess a firearm or ammunition, according to court records. His prior felony convictions include vehicular assault, harassment, unlawful firearm possession, theft and possession of a controlled substance, dating back to 2004. 

According to the Whatcom County Jail roster, Noisey is being held in lieu of $150,000 bond.
