Cash App founder Bob Lee was reportedly stabbed to death in San Francisco, California.
"Police found him on Tuesday morning suffering from numerous stab wounds and transported him to a hospital where he died. No arrests have been made," reported Breitbart.
Local police reports reveal the 43-year-old was attacked in the downtown neighborhood of Rincon Hill.
"According to his friend and mixed martial arts champion Jake Shields, Lee was attacked while walking," reported Breitbart.
"He was in the 'good' part of the city and appeared to have been targeted in a random mugging/attack," Shields shared on Twitter.

"In his impressive career, Bob Lee has held positions such as Square’s chief technology officer and, most recently, MobileCoin’s chief product officer since November 2021. On Tuesday night, his coworkers started offering sincere condolences, with MobileCoin CEO Joshua Goldbard calling Lee 'a force of nature,'" reported Breitbart.
"Bob was a force of nature. Helped to birth Android and Cash App into our world," Goldbard said. "Moby was his dream: a privacy-protecting wallet for the 21st Century. I will miss him every day."
Lee previously worked at Google as team leader for the Android core library. Lee also contributed to the introduction of the most popular operating system in the world.
Following those ventures, Lee invested in a number of businesses, including Figma, Clubhouse, Beeper, and Faire, and founded the social network Present.
