One of the men, 53-year-old veteran Ricky Best, died on the train, while another young man, 23-year-old Taliesin Namkai-Meche, who had recently graduated from college, died at the hospital from his wounds. Christian attacked the men with a knife, killing Namkai-Meche and Best, and leaving Johnson badly wounded. A third man who tried to step in was also stabbed but survived. Fletcher was also present for the arraignment and watched the white supremacist defend his actions.

Meche, Best and Fletcher interrupted Christian's rant, which resulted in the deaths of Meche and Best and the stabbing of Fletcher in his neck, notes Mediaite.com. His wound missed being a fatal injury by millimeters, officials said in court documents.
