6 children among 9 injured in Idaho mass stabbing

UPDATE 2:00 p.m.: Boise police say the suspect in a mass stabbing that injured nine people had targeted a three-year-old girl's birthday party.

Four the victims' injuries remained life-threatening as of Sunday morning, police said in a statement. The three other victims were adults who tried to intervene.

Bones said his department had never dealt with an attack of this magnitude.

Police arrested 30-year-old Timmy Kinner in connection to the stabbings, but authorities do not yet have a motive for the attack.

Timmy Kinner, 30, suspect in the stabbing in an apartment complex on Saturday night is seen in this Ada County Sheriff's Office booking photo in Boise, Idaho, U.S. on July 1, 2018. Police said that an unnamed resident was allowing Kinner to stay there, but asked him to leave because of "his behavior". "We haven't had anything involving this amount of victims in a single attack in Boise in the history of the department", Bones said.

The apartment complex was known for being a place that housed resettled refugees. It also was not immediately clear whether all of the victims were refugees.

"We are by no means out of the woods", Bones said.

Johnson surged into the lead with his 63, thanks to eight birdies and six birdies in a row from the 11th hole to the 16th hole. Day knows he needs a red-hot score today, and the good news for him is that he could be shooting even lower.

"You can imagine this is a very tight-knit community here in this apartment complex", he added.

Investigators said they did not yet know if the suspect was connected to the victims in any way. They found nine people in the parking lot and inside the apartment complex who had been stabbed, KBOI reported.

As of Sunday afternoon, all nine victims had survived the night.

The flat complex is just off of one of Boise's busier streets, separated from the traffic by one of the many irrigation canals that run through the city.

The victims were attacked at a low-income apartment complex on West State Street and Wylie Lane for refugee families.

"He returned last night to exact vengeance, not just on those whom he had been [staying] with because they were not at the apartment, but at any target that was available", Bones said. A court appearance for Kinner is scheduled for Monday.

Boise Mayor Dave Bieter responded to the attack. "Please keep them and their families in your thoughts and prayers". The IRC is working with local partners in Boise to provide counseling and support to refugees and other members of the community shaken by this incident.
