20-year-old Calvin Riley was shot and killed near the Fisherman's Wharf area in San Francisco. You'll see stories posted all over making it seem like this young man was killed because he was playing Pokemon Go, but that's not really what happened. No one knows why he was shot and killed. None of his belongings were stolen (that we know of). But was the man murdered because he was playing Pokemon Go? I doubt it. I don't think the game has anything to do with what happened to this young man. But since Pokemon Go is popular right now, and he was playing it at the time of his unfortunate passing, then of course the popular GPS based game would be in most news outlets title, even ours.
LA Times - 20-year-old man was shot and killed while playing ?Pokemon Go? near San Francisco?s Fisherman?s Wharf, a popular tourist destination along the waterfront, authorities said Sunday. The shooting of Calvin Riley occurred about 10 p.m. Saturday in Aquatic Park, said Sgt. Robert Jansing, a detective with the U.S. Park Police. Aquatic Park is adjacent to Ghirardelli Square in San Francisco Maritime National Historic Park.

The assailant did not take any of Riley?s property or attempt to rob him, Jansing said. Investigators were puzzled by what led to the slaying.
