20-Year-Old Baseball Star Killed While Playing - Pokemon Go - MMORPG.com

A young baseball star playing Pokemon Go in a very public place at a reasonable hour of night was shot and killed in what appears to be a random act of violence. The murder happened at a Pokestop on San Francisco's Aquatic Park near the city's largest tourist location. 20-year-old Calvin Riley, a budding collegiate baseball star, was shot in the chest and died, despite the efforts of first responders.

Local news station CBS San Francisco is reporting that police are seeking witnesses who might have information about the crime and are culling local security camera footage to determine who shot Mr. Riley. At this time, there is no motive or suspect identified.

The family of Mr. Riley has set up a GoFundMe page to raise $40,000 to cover funeral expenses.
