Cash App founder Bob Lee’s final moments were reportedly caught on surveillance footage and included his frantic attempts to flag down a vehicle for help as well as a desperate call to 911.

Lee reportedly walked up a deserted San Francisco street while gripping his side with one hand and his cell phone in the other as his blood dripped onto the sidewalk, according to footage obtained by the San Francisco Standard.

“Help! Someone stabbed me,” he yelled into his phone. Lee then collapsed on a Rincon sidewalk, where he was found by medics. He had been stabbed twice in the chest and was rushed to the hospital, where he later died.

Video footage of the 43-year-old chief product officer of MobileCoin shows the wounded man walking up Main Street, away from the Bay Bridge, at roughly 2:30 am. He crossed the intersection at Harrison Street and walked toward a white Camry that was parked with its hazard lights flashing, according to the Standard.

Lee reportedly lifted his shirt to show his wounds, but the driver of the vehicle sped away and Lee fell to the ground. He desperately got up again and walked toward Bay Bridge before falling to the ground outside of an apartment building called the Portside, the Standard reported.

Lee’s frantic call to 911 was placed at 2:34 a.m., and police arrived on the scene less than six minutes later. He was already unconscious when officers located him at the scene.

San Francisco Police Chief Bill Scott declined to say whether the stabbing was random, and did not mention any arrests made or suspects identified in this case.

“I have nothing to share yet,” Scott said at a police commission meeting on Wednesday.

“We don’t want to be premature and definitely we don’t want to speculate so we are going to be thoughtful about following the evidence and we’ll put out what we’ll put out as soon as we can,” he said, according to the Standard.

“I would like to express my deepest condolences to the family, friends and loved ones of Mr. Lee. There is no place for this kind of violent crime against anyone in our city,” Scott said. (RELATED: 911 Call Released From Jeremy Renner Snowplowing Accident)

“I want to assure everyone that our investigators are working tirelessly to make an arrest and bring justice to Mr. Lee and his loved ones, just as we try to do on every homicide that occurs in our city,” he said, per the Standard.
