Statesman staffFebruary 21, 2014 

Garden City police are investigating a stabbing that injured a 22-year-old Boise man at the West River Inn Friday night.

Officers were called to the motel at 3525 Chinden Blvd. at 7:05 p.m. and found motel patrons giving first aid to David Kirby, who suffered several knife wounds to his torso and arm.

Investigators were told Kirby and 24-year-old Shaw Logsdon of Nampa had been in a verbal argument in the 3600 block of Chinden, and Logsdon and his girlfriend walked back to the West River Inn, where they were staying. As they were entering their room, Kirby reportedly drove into the parking lot and confronted Logsdon, police said. A fight ensued, and Kirby was stabbed.

Kirby was taken to Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center,, where he was admitted for treatment of injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening, police said.

Logsdon was detained by police but had not been arrested as of 10 p.m. Friday. Detectives are interviewing potential witnesses and examining the evidence.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Garden City Police Department at 472-2950 or Crime Stoppers at 343-COPS.
