The owner of an MSP in the San Francisco area has been booked on suspicion of murder in connection with the stabbing death of CashApp founder Bob Lee.
That’s according to Mission Local. The San Francisco Police Department arrested Nima Momeni early Thursday in Emeryville, just outside San Francisco. He owns Expand IT.
SFPD Chief Bill Scott released a statement on the incident and investigation:
“On April 4, 2023, at approximately 2:35 a.m., San Francisco Police officers from Southern Station responded to the 300 block of Main Street for a report of a stabbing. Officers arrived on scene and located the victim, later identified as 43-year-old Robert Lee, suffering from apparent stab wounds. Officers rendered aid and summoned medics to the scene.”
Medics transported Lee to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries. Despite efforts by first responders and medical personnel, he died from his injuries.
According to Reuters, Lee is believed to have known Momeni. The two men reportedly were driving in downtown San Francisco in Momeni’s car when an alleged confrontation led to Lee’s stabbing.
Expand IT’s website is currently down. On Momeni’s LinkedIn page, he describes Expand IT as “a group of local expert enterprise IT professionals dedicated to providing solid, reliable and efficient technology solutions and cost effective support services to our valued SMB and enterprise client.”
In addition to founding CashApp, Lee was former CTO at Square.
A LinkedIn News article includes comments from colleagues.
“I’m shocked, terribly saddened and sickened by the loss of a true technology innovator Bob Lee,” said Scott Antle, principal director of customer success at Microsoft. “He was my intern 20+ years ago at D’Arcy Advertising and even then, it was so evident his sheer brilliance would impact this world. He and I shared great talks about his future, where he wanted to go and what he was capable of. I’m gutted. He was pure genius and greatness.”
