A tech mogul who helped create Android and Cash app, has been stabbed to death in San Francisco.
Bob Lee, 43, was attacked in the city’s plush downtown residential Rincon Hill neighborhood at 2.35am on Tuesday.
Police were called to the 300 block of Main Street near the entrance of a high-rise close to the waterfront and found the dad-of-two suffering from multiple stab wounds.
Friends told the San Francisco Standard that he had been visiting the area for business and decided to stay an extra day when he was stabbed.
Authorities confirmed that he was rushed to hospital but died from his injuries in the early hours.
Officials have yet to make an arrest, and San Francisco Police have not released any details of a suspect.
In a statement, they said: ‘Officers rendered aid and summoned medics to the scene. The victim was transported to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries,’ police said in a statement.
‘Despite efforts by first responders and medical personnel, the victim succumbed to his injuries.’
Lee, who was dubbed ‘Crazy Bob’ by friends, was an active investor in numerous companies, such as SpaceX, Clubhouse and Figma.
Heartbroken friends and colleagues paid tribute to the tech executive, with Joshua Goldbard saying: ‘My heart is broken tonight’.
He added: ‘Bob was a force of nature. Helped to birth Android and CashApp into our world.
‘Moby was his dream: a privacy-protecting wallet for the 21st Century. I will miss him every day.’
Bill Barhydt added: ‘Bob was a dad, the former CTO of Square where he created Cash App & CTO of Mobile Coin.
‘He was a generous decent human being who didn’t deserve to be killed.’
