6 kids stabbed at birthday party; suspect wanted revenge, police say

05 July 2018

The 3-year-old girl died from her injuries Monday morning, according to Boise police.

He then returned on Saturday night to "exact vengeance", first targeting the children attending a three-year-old's birthday party, then the adults who tried to protect them.

Comstock told Kinner he was "an extreme danger to the community" and ordered him held without bond. Of the remaining eight victims, one child was treated and released from the hospital, and seven others are still in the hospital, many with serious or critical injuries, Boise police said.

Kinner, according to police, attacked the guest after a resident kicked him out on Friday night after the suspect was allowed to temporarily stay with him, as CrimeOnline previously reported. "Those nine victims have been transported to the local emergency room, all are receiving treatment; unfortunately some of those victims in addition are suffering from life-threatening injuries".

Kinner, who is not a refugee, had been asked to leave the apartment complex Friday after staying there for a short time with a resident, Bones said.

The toddler was one of six children stabbed in the attack, which took place at an apartment complex that is home to many refugees.

Officers were dispatched at 8:46 p.m. on a call about a man with a knife at the apartment complex on Wylie Lane and State Street, an initial news release said.

Kinner appeared in court on Monday, informing the judge he wants to represent himself in court.

Boise Mayor Dave Bieter condemned the attack on Twitter.

The attack Saturday night was at an apartment complex that is home to refugee families. "Kinner attacked, targeting the children initially".

Police did not specify a motive in the attack, adding that Kinner is not a refugee.

The other victims, who are all from Syria, Iraq and Ethiopia, include two 4-year-olds, a 6-year-old, a 12-year-old, and three adults who stepped in to try and stop the attack. Authorities say he stabbed nine people, including six children.

"The crime scene, the faces of the parents struggling, the tears streaming down their faces, the faces of children in hospital beds will be something I will carry with me for the rest of my life", Bones said. He is not an immigrant and went on the rampage a day after being asked to leave by one of the residents, police said.

The St. George Police Department, in Utah, verified that in April the department arrested Kinner for theft. "We're doing everything we can tonight to get them services, to get them through this evening, and we'll be working with them in the days and weeks that follow".
