At 8:46 pm on June 30, 2018, Boise Police were dispatched to a call regarding a man with a knife at an apartment complex on Wylie Ln and State St. Officers arrived and quickly located the suspect and took him into custody at 8:50 pm as he headed northbound near the apartments.  Additional officers located nine victims inside and outside of the apartments and began providing first aid. The victims were taken to a local hospital and four victims are being treated for life-threatening injuries.  The victims include members of Boise’s refugee community and there are BPD victim witness coordinators and counselors who will be assisting the families and witnesses in the days and weeks ahead.
