Congresswoman Speier and Parents of College Ballplayer Killed while Playing “Pokemon Go” to Announce $50,000 Reward

July 7, 2017
Press Release

San Mateo, CA – Congresswoman Jackie Speier (CA-14) with Sean Riley and Kariann Riley will announce a $50,000 reward funded by the City of San Francisco to help find the person who killed Calvin Riley, their son. They will also be joined by U.S. Park Police which are investigating the shooting. Calvin Riley, 20, was playing “Pokemon Go” with a group of friends near Aquatic Park on the night of August 6, 2016 when an unknown assailant shot him. Calvin was pronounced dead at the scene.


U.S. Park Police have not identified a suspect.


“With the generosity of the city of San Francisco, I am hoping that witnesses will step forward and help solve this homicide,” Speier said. “While the capture of the killer won’t bring back their son, the Rileys would have some closure involving this horrific loss to their family. Importantly, residents of San Francisco would also have certainty that a killer is removed from their streets preventing this person from killing again.”


At the time of death, Calvin Riley, a graduate of Serra High School in San Mateo, was in his second year at Delta College in Stockton.
