Given this was in San Francisco, which is essentially a third world country, it’s likely this was just a random act of violence on the street. Tragic and senseless news regardless, via NBC:

A high-profile Bay Area tech executive was killed in a stabbing in San Francisco.

Sources tell NBC Bay Area Bob Lee was attacked early Tuesday morning near Rincon Hill and the Bay Bridge.

Lee, 43, was the chief product officer of MobileCoin. He was also former chief technology officer of Square and one of the co-founders of Cash App.

No arrests have been made, and SF police have no suspects or motive at this time.

More on Lee via TechCrunch:

Before joining MobileCoin, Bob Lee worked at Google for the first few years of Android, focusing on core library development. He then joined Square, the payment company that later became Block, to develop its Android app. He became the company’s first CTO and also created Cash App.

Bob Lee, also known as ‘Crazy Bob,’ was an investor in tech startups as well. According to his LinkedIn profile, he invested in SpaceX, Clubhouse, Tile, Figma, Faire, Orchid, Addressable, Nana, Ticket Fairy, Gowalla, Asha, SiPhox, Netswitch, Found and others.
