Arrest made in stray bullet fatality at Ferndale BBQ
The state crime lab matched the bullet that killed Alyssa Smith, 23, of Ferndale, last June with the gun fired by Nicholas Zylstra, 31, of Lynden.
KOMO reports he was arrested Thursday and held without bail in Bellingham on suspicion of manslaughter.
Zylstra was one of five people deputies found shooting guns along the Nooksack River after Smith was fatally wounded at the family barbecue at her father’s house.
