Bob Lee, Cash App founder and executive at cryptocurrency firm MobileCoin, died on Tuesday after a “horrific” act in San Francisco, according to San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins.

According to a San Francisco Police Department report, officers responded to a stabbing report around 2:35 a.m. on Tuesday and discovered a 43-year-old man with stab wounds.

The victim was not identified in the report, but the details matched Lee, who was 43 years old.

Officers summoned medics, who transported the victim to a nearby hospital with life-threatening injuries, according to the police report, adding that the victim died as a result of his injuries.

“In San Francisco, we do not tolerate these heinous acts of violence,” Jenkins said.

In a statement to ABC News, San Francisco Mayor London Breed called Lee’s death a “horrible tragedy.”

“My heartfelt condolences go out to his family and friends,” Breed said. “The police are actively investigating what occurred and will provide details as soon as possible.”

Lee was the company’s first chief technology officer, working for Square, the digital payment company founded by former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.
