Attacker stabs 9, including 6 children, at Idaho apartment complex

Nine people were stabbed Saturday night at a Boise, Idaho, apartment complex home to many refugee families. A suspect named Timmy Kinner, age 30, has been arrested in connection with the attack. He is not a refugee, but he used to live at the apartment complex until he was asked to leave.

The victims, six of whom are children, have been hospitalized, some with life-threatening wounds. "At this point we haven't lost anybody, but as I said the injuries are very serious," said Boise police chief William Bones. "This incident is not a representation of our community but a single evil individual who attacked people without provocation that we are aware of at this time."

So far, authorities have not released information on Kinner's possible motives or any specific connections he may have to the victims.
