Man Stabs 9 At Child’s Birthday Party In Idaho
A birthday party turned deadly as nine people including six children were stabbed on Saturday night (June 30th) in Boise, Idaho, by a man who’d been asked to leave the apartment complex a day earlier because of bad behavior.
CBS DFW report, the suspect Timmy Kinner targeted the party that was being held a few doors down from where he’d stayed for a brief time before he was asked to leave by the resident who offered him a place to stay.
Four of the victims have life threatening injuries and Boise Police Chief William Bones said that refugees from Syria, Iraq, and Ethiopia were among the injured, but there is no evidence if the attack was a hate crime, although the possibility remains under investigation.
The crime scene, the faces of the parents struggling, the tears coming down their faces, the faces of the children in their hospital beds will be something that I carry with me for the rest of my life, as will every first responder that night.
Bones said Kinner left peacefully when the resident had asked him to leave the previous day, and that woman wasn't among the victims. The 30-year-old Kinner, who has an extensive criminal record, was arrested near the scene.
