Among the victims were members of Boise's refugee community, and six of the nine victims were children, police said.

Thirty-year-old Timmy Kinner of Los Angeles has been charged with several felonies in connection with the attack.

Boise Police Chief Bill Bones said nine people were taken to area hospitals, some with life-threatening injuries, after the attack at the Wylie Street Station Apartment complex near Wylie Lane and West State street. The International Rescue Committee and the Agency for New Americans were among the organizations launching fundraising campaigns to aid the victims. "And then we ran to the closet", Fathi said. Bones said the attack does not appear to be a hate crime, but that does not make it any less awful. He said the stabbing victims are his friends. Kinner targeted the children before adults at the party intervened.

He came back on Saturday around 8:30 p.m.to "exact vengeance", according to Bones.

He was due to be arraigned in Ada County Court Monday and charges may be amended now the 3-year-old child has died, officials said.

Bones says there's no evidence that the attack was a hate crime.

Bones described the apartment complex as a "tight-knit community".

"I believe her perception was, 'Here's a helping hand I can give in return for a helping hand I have been given, '" the chief said. The victims were placed in Boise as part of former President Barack Obama's refugee resettlement program of 2012.

"It is heartbreaking to know that people and children who fled horrors of war and conflict to find safety in America and the Boise community had to experience this violence all over again", said Megan Schwab, an IRC spokesperson.

A 3-year-old girl little girl celebrating her birthday at a party in an apartment complex in Boise, Idaho, on Sunday, has passed away after succumbing to stab wound injuries, the Boise Police Department confirmed. "We had children from different continents sitting at a small child's birthday party".

Bones did not release the names of the victims nor the ages of the adult victims injured in the attack.

A 3-year-old girl has died just two days after a mass stabbing at a Boise apartment complex. Some were gravely wounded, Bones said.

The suspect had recently stayed at the apartment complex but on Friday was asked to leave over bad behaviour, Police Chief Bones said. They stayed inside until police told them it was safe. The complex houses many resettled refugee families, but Kinner is not a refugee. The woman and her neighbours became concerned about Kinner's behaviour and asked him to leave on Friday, which he did without incident, authorities said.

"Our hearts go out to the victims who are in hospital tonight, please keep them and their families in your thoughts and prayers", he said. Kinner faces several felony charges, including aggravated battery and injury to a child.

A 30-year-old California man named Timmy Kinner was arrested late Saturday night after allegedly stabbing nine people at a low-income apartment complex where many refugee families live.

Police are asking anyone who has had contact with Kinner in recent months to call the department or reach out online at www.343COPS.com.

The attack Saturday evening took place at an apartment complex home to refugee families.
