According to statements by other employees, who witnessed the fact, Toney and Knight were friends outside of work even though they did not share political positions. Knight was a supporter of Donald Trump, while Toney "was against the government, was very open about his beliefs that the government is bad and went after him," according to the affidavit.

Workers in the construction of the Turnpike Road, in the Orlando metropolitan area, told investigators of the case that Knight had picked up Toney to go to work and that they had led to different construction areas when they started the discussion.
When they arrived at Turnpike, the employees heard William Knight shouting for help. They ran and saw Toney stabbing Knight with a bucket of mason, according to what is read in the statement.
The other employees said they threw objects at Toney to try to stop him, but he approached them with what they thought was a knife. He got into a van and left, while calling his fellow terrorists.
