You’d think adults who take the time to play such a risky game such as ‘Pokemon Go‘ would be more careful!

According to The Los Angeles Times, 20-year-old  Calvin Riley was shot and killed while playing ‘Pokemon Go’ near San Francisco’s tourist attraction, The Fisherman’s Wharf, a popular tourist destination along the waterfront, authorities said Sunday.

Riley was walking on the promenade along the water and playing the popular cellphone game when he was gunned down Saturday about 10 p.m. The assailant did not take any of Riley’s property or attempt to rob him, Sgt. Robert Jansing said. Jansing is a detective with the U.S. Park Police.

Investigators were puzzled by what led to the slaying.

“There doesn’t appear to be any outstanding motive right now,” Jansing said.

Although the shooting occurred late at night, several people were still at the park, which annually sees about 4 million visitors, said Lynn Cullivan, a spokesman for the park.

Riley hailed from San Mateo, Calif., where he graduated from Junipero Serra High School in 2015. At San Joaquin Delta College in Stockton, Riley was studying kinesiology and playing on the college’s baseball team, according to the school website.
