9 injured in mass stabbing at Idaho apartment complex

Boise Police Chief Bill Bones said nine people were taken to area hospitals some with life-threatening injuries after

Timmy Kinner, 30, of Los Angeles faces nine counts of aggravated battery and six counts of injury to a child after the frenzied attacks in the city of Boise.

Idaho is deeply conservative, particularly outside of Ada County where Boise is located. Authorities did not immediately say why Kinner was asked to move out of the apartment complex. The news release said four victims were being treated for life-threatening injuries.

The national media quickly seized on the fact that the apartment complex was known to house refugees and that some of the victims themselves were apparently refugees.

"As you can imagine, the witnesses in the apartment complex - along with the rest of our community - are reeling from this attack", the police chief said. But due to his disruptive behavior, Kinner was asked to leave the apartment on Friday, the chief said.

Victim witness coordinators and counselors were being made available to the victims, their families and friends and other residents of the apartment complex, Bones said.

The investigation is ongoing.

Idaho police have identified the suspect in a mass stabbing at a Boise apartment complex as a temporary resident who was recently asked to leave the complex.

Boise Mayor Dave Bieter condemned the attack on Twitter, writing: "Last night's horrific attack does not represent Boise", Bieter wrote. "Please join me in praying for the injured and their families".

"The senseless acts of one disturbed person does not change that".

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.

As of Sunday afternoon, each of those victims has survived, though several of the injuries remained serious, he said. This attack does not reflect, in any way, the tremendous welcoming nature of the Boise community we have worked with so closely since opening in 2006. Some people posted on Facebook that they planned to take flowers to the complex Sunday. "The age range of the victims varies dramatically". Boise Police Department has not confirmed those details.

Some of the victims are refugees who live in the complex.

Kinner, who has a criminal record, wasn't cooperative with officials, Bones added.

Boisean Celeste Dimas has started a GoFundMe to support the victims. "There is no place for evil here", Dimas said.
