12:03 PM PTBob Lee‘s murder was tragic and enraging, so says San Francisco District Supervisor Joel Engardio … who also tells us the fear of crime in the city is real — even if the murder stats are down.

Joel joined us on “TMZ Live” Thursday, and he said he’s been hearing serious concern from the people in his Sunset district … and he points out that while the number of murders has decreased, that doesn’t mean crime’s gone down, too.

He lists off the numerous things people in his city are facing in terms of crime — and he tells us his thoughts about a new ruling regarding homeless encampments in SF.

Cash App founder Bob Lee’s final moments were reportedly caught on video before he collapsed dead from stab wounds on a California street.

Surveillance footage, reviewed by The San Francisco Standard, showed Lee tending to his injuries with one hand while holding his mobile phone with the other hand as he staggered down a desolate city street early Tuesday morning. A trail of blood was left in his wake.

The video also depicted Lee approaching a Toyota Camry with its hazard lights on and raising his shirt to reveal a stab wound to the driver. As Lee asked for help, the motorist sped away.

Moments later, Lee fell to the ground, but he got back up and walked further down the road before collapsing again.

Using his cell phone, Lee called 911 and screamed, “Help! Someone stabbed me!” By the time San Francisco police arrived, Lee was already unconscious and later died at a local hospital.
