Man shot and killed while playing Pokemon GO near San Francisco waterfront

- Authorities in San Francisco said Saturday that a 20-year-old man was shot and killed while playing Pokemon GO at a tourist attraction along the city’s waterfront.

Calvin Riley, of San Mateo, was shot Saturday night by an unidentified person at Aquatic Park near Ghirardelli Square, U.S. Park Police said.

A family friend told KGO-TV that Riley and a friend were playing the smartphone game when he was shot.

"From what we know there was no confrontation. There was nothing said back and forth. It was just senseless, just came up and shot in the back and ran away for nothing," John Kirby said.

Kirby said Riley and his friend had noticed someone was watching them from the top of a hill that overlooks the park. However, it was dark and they were mostly focused on their cell phones.
