It was reported that Momeni knew the victim and was even seen driving together through downtown San Francisco in a car registered to the suspect earlier on the same day that Lee was stabbed. It is suspected that some sort of confrontation ensued between the two men while they were inside the car and continued even after Lee has exited the vehicle.

Momeni allegedly stabbed Lee multiple times with a knife. The murder weapon was recovered a short distance away from the spot on the 300 block of Main Street, where the officers initially responded.
