3-year-old girl dies after being stabbed at own birthday party

He is being held without bond.

Crowds of people bearing flowers and balloons gathered Monday in Idaho's capital for a vigil in honor of nine people who were stabbed at a birthday party in Boise.

"The thought of a happy occasion like a child's birthday party being turned into the darkest of sorrows in such a vicious way is nearly unfathomable".

ORIGINAL: According to the Boise Police Department nine people, including six children, are hospitalized and one man is in custody after a stabbing at a Boise apartment complex.

A temporary resident of the complex, Kinner was asked on Friday to leave the premises, Bones told a media gathering.

Kinner is expected to be in court on Monday.

Two children who witnessed the attack said they, and several other children, ran and hid in a closet.

It is not immediately clear whether all of the victims were refugees, Bones added.

Some of the stabbing victims were their friends, Fathi said.

The children who were attacked ranged in age from three to 12, Bones said.

Although the new Netflix Ultra plan is just being tested, it could also become an actual new tier if it's applied to everyone. The three subscription plans Netflix now offers, basic, standard and premium, cost $7.99, $10.99 and $13.99, respectively.

On Sunday, police identified the suspect as Timmy Kinner of Los Angeles, Calif. Kinner returned to the apartment complex late Saturday and began stabbing people attending a child's birthday party. When they arrived they found stabbing victims both inside the complex and in the auto park; Kinner was arrested a short distance away. Many families in the area were awaiting information as Boise police investigated the crime scene.

Thirty-year-old Timmy Kinner was arrested a short distance away. He has been charged with several felonies.

Police said charges against Kinner may be amended in the wake of the child's death.

Boise police said Monday that a 3-year-old girl, flown to a Salt Lake City hospital after she and eight people were stabbed at her birthday party, has died.

Timothy Kinner, 30, was arrested as the suspect in the stabbings.

Megan Schwab with the International Rescue Committee said the violent attack may compound the existing trauma already experienced by the refugee families, many of whom fled war and conflict in hopes of finding safety in the U.S. The little girl's name will not be released until additional family has been notified, police said.

Kinner has not cooperated with officials so the motive of his attack remained unclear. A reason for the violent attack has also yet to be determined.

At 8.46pm Saturday, police responded to a report of a man with a knife at the complex. "Officers located the suspect nearly immediately and took him into custody".

Police found nine victims - inside and outside the apartments - and rendered first aid.

"Boise is a welcoming city, we have been that way for generations", said Mayor David Bieter in a prepared statement.
