The moments following the San Francisco stabbing attack of Cash App founder Bob Lee were captured on surveillance video and in a 911 call to authorities, according to a local Bay Area news portal.

The surveillance footage, reviewed by the online news site The San Francisco Standard, was recorded early Tuesday morning in the Rincon Hill neighborhood and shows Lee walking alone on Main Street, “gripping his side with one hand and his cellphone in the other, leaving a trail of blood behind him.”

The video, the Standard reports, shows Lee making his way up the street and stopping by a parked Toyota Camry with its hazard lights flashing. He lifts up his shirt in an apparent attempt to ask for help from the driver. The driver of the Toyota pulls the car away and Lee collapses to the ground. Lee manages to get up and walk a bit further before he collapses in front of an apartment building.

The Standard also reviewed records of a 911 call Lee made at 2:34 a.m. Tuesday morning screaming “Help, someone stabbed me!”

The Standard does not indicate where the surveillance was taken from and it is not clear what time frame it captures after Lee was stabbed.

The San Francisco Police did not immediately respond to questions about the video and 911 call, but the department chief William Scott released a statement Wednesday with his condolences to Lee’s family.

“This investigation is in the early stages. Because of this, we are not commenting on evidence, nor will we speculate on the circumstances surrounding this horrible crime,” he said in a tweet.

“There is no place for this kind of violent crime against anyone in our city.”
