Multiple people injured, including chidren, in Idaho stabbing

Refugees among 9 victims in Idaho stabbing spree

Thirty-year-old Timmy Kinner of Los Angeles has been charged with several felonies in connection with the attack.

For more information on how to support the victims and their families, visit the International Rescue Committee, the Boise IRC and the Agency for New Americans.

"We didn't want to get stabbed", said 12-year-old Esrom Habte.

Mayor Dave Bieter, whose own grandparents emigrated from the Basque country, called the attack a "callous act" that doesn't reflect the community.

At least four individuals suffered life threatening injuries.

"We were on the phone with the police", Esrom said.

He was not a refugee himself but had been staying with an acquaintance for a few days, police chief Bill Bones told a news conference.

Kinner appeared in court through closed-circuit video, a common practice for first appearances in Idaho. "We haven't had anything involving this amount of victims in a single attack in Boise in the history of the department", Bones said.

Kinner is accused of attacking the birthday party because he wanted revenge for being kicked out of the complex, Boise Police Chief William Bones said Sunday.




A resident of the complex allowed Kinner to stay at her apartment after he said he needed a place to go, Bones said.

Roughly 100 people held a rally near the attack, calling for safety for refugees.

A vigil for the victims is scheduled for 6 p.m. Monday on the front steps of Boise City Hall.

Police arrive at the crime scene, with nine stabbing victims were rushed to hospital. "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 prosecutor on Monday described their injuries as "very, very significant", with one woman stabbed as many as 15 times, according to relatives.

The attacks come amid increasingly nationalistic and aggressive language from the Trump administration regarding refugees and immigrants, who the president says poses a threat to the United States.

Bones said police believe the knife used in the stabbing was discarded by the suspect before his arrest and police searched around the apartment complex and in a nearby canal. He lived in the apartment complex until he was evicted on Friday, according to Boise State Public Radio. Three adults who tried to intervene were also injured, he said.

Bones said he'll never forget what he saw at the apartment complex that night.

Timmy Kinner, 30, allegedly knifed nine people in the bloodbath at the bash in Boise, Idaho, Saturday, including six children aged three to 12, leaving several of his victims in a critical condition.
