SAN FRANCISCO (AP) —
A 20-year-old man was shot to death while playing “Pokemon Go” at a tourist attraction along San Francisco’s waterfront, authorities and a family friend said on Sunday.

Calvin Riley was shot Saturday night by an unknown assailant at Aquatic Park near Ghiradelli Square, the U.S. Park Police said.

A family friend told KGO-TV Riley and a friend were playing the hit mobile 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.​

Sounds to me like he was just killed. Pokémon go had very little to do with this.

Sounds to me like possibly gang initiation. Maybe they had to take a life to get in the gang, so they chose someone completely distracted. Just a thought.

Well he got killed wondering around in the middle of the night in an abandoned theme park for a Snorlax. I'd call it Pokemon Go related.
