According to a local report, Cash App founder Bob Lee stumbled down a San Francisco sidewalk early Tuesday morning, clutching at a wound on his side, before a driver ignored his apparent pleas for help and left him for dead on the sidewalk.
Bob Lee, 43, was stabbed around 2:30 a.m. in Rincon Hill, a residential neighborhood near Google’s headquarters with a few restaurants and bars.
The news comes just as San Francisco Mayor London Breed confirmed widespread reports of Lee’s death.
“The homicide of Bob Lee is a horrible tragedy and my sympathies go out to his family and friends,” Breed said. “The police are actively investigating what happened and will share details as soon as they can.”
According to the San Francisco Standard, around 2:30 a.m., Bob Lee was seen on surveillance video stumbling down the sidewalk away from the Bay Bridge, holding his side before collapsing.
He was holding a phone in his other hand and appeared to show a passing driver his injury before collapsing. According to the paper, the vehicle drove away without visible assistance.
Lee stood up and made it to a nearby residential tower before collapsing again.
Police said they found a man with stab wounds outside at 2:35 a.m., rendered aid and rushed him to the hospital, where he died from his injuries.
