Idaho stabbing: Nine injured, one arrested in Boise

BPD confirmed a man armed with a knife attacked a crowd of people gathered for a child's birthday party at the Wylie Street Station Apartments, which is home to many refugee families, that's left the city in shock.

He said that some of the victims had suffered life-threatening injuries and added that "the level of some of the injuries will be life-altering in a very negative way". The three other victims were adults who tried to intervene. Bones said all are alive, although some are gravely injured.

The Ada County Sheriff's Office on Sunday identified the suspect as 30-year-old Timmy Earl Kinner of Los Angeles.

Kinner has been charged with nine counts of aggravated battery and six counts of injury to a child, Bones said. Police said that an unnamed resident was allowing Kinner to stay there, but asked him to leave because of "his behavior".

The motive for the attack was not immediately known, Boise Police Chief Bill Bones said.

At present, the administration says it has more than 2,000 immigrant children in its custody, and though President Trump signed an executive order last month supposedly reuniting those families, and a judge ordered the administration to do so within 30 days, there is now no plan in place to accommodate that order.

The analyst went on to say Americans viewed the alleged hacking as "aggression against the country" and believed the Russian government "caused some trouble there".

Still, Bones said, it is one of several possibilities that remain under investigation.

Police responded to a call of a man with a knife at 8:46 p.m. (10:46 p.m. ET) and arrived at the apartment complex four minutes later, Bones said.

Police found nine victims - inside and outside the apartments - and rendered first aid.

He returned Saturday evening to "exact vengeance", Bones said. Police Chief William Bones said some of the injured residents included members of the city's refugee community.

The victims were attacked at a low-income apartment complex on West State Street and Wylie Lane for refugee families. Some people posted on Facebook that they planned to take flowers to the complex Sunday. She and her family learned of the news late Saturday night and felt she had to do something. A court appearance for Kinner is scheduled for Monday.

"As Boiseans, we come together not only to condemn this vile act, but also to embrace those among us seeking refuge from tyranny, suffering and war".

Victim-witness coordinators and counselors will help victims and witnesses, police said.
