Nine people, including six children, have been injured in a mass stabbing at an Idaho apartment complex that is home to many refugee families.
Boise Police Chief Bill Bones said the all nine victims were hospitalized, some with life-threatening injuries.
'At this point we haven't lost anybody, but as I said the injuries are very serious,' Bones said.
Police arrested 30-year-old Timmy Kinner in connection to the stabbings, but authorities do not yet have a motive for the attack.
'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,' Bones said.
He said the attack resulted in the most victims in a single incident in Boise Police Department history.
'As you can imagine, the Wylie Street Apartment and our community is reeling from this attack,' he said.
Kinner was a temporary resident of the apartment complex until he was asked to leave on Friday. He was not a refugee.
Police received a report of a stabbing at 8.46pm, and responded to the apartment complex within four minutes, Bones said.
