A 20-year-old student and baseball player at a community college in Stockton was shot and killed Saturday night while playing "Pokémon Go" at Aquatic Park near Ghirardelli Square, authorities say.
A family friend, John Kirby, told KGO-TV that Calvin Riley, 20, was playing the mobile game with a friend when someone shot him and fled.
"From what we know, there was no confrontation," Kirby said. "There was nothing said back and forth. It was just senseless."
Kirby said Riley and his friend had noticed someone watching them from the top of a hill that overlooks the park, but it was dark and they were mostly looking at their cellphones.
Sgt. Robert Jansing, a detective with the U.S. Park Police, said the gunman did not take any of Riley's belongings or try to rob him. Police say Riley was shot in the torso.
