- The city of San Francisco is announcing new reward money to help solve the murder of a rising San Mateo baseball star who was shot while playing Pokemon-Go near Ghirardelli Square.

Congresswoman Jackie Speier announced that San Francisco is putting up a $50,000 reward, while U.S. Park Police will be offering an additional $10,000. The Riley family is already offering a $50,000 reward, bringing the total reward money to $110,000.

U. S. Park Police have also released new information about another possible getaway car in the killing happened that almost one year ago.

"It's been hell we're living a nightmare everyday, we still feel like he's coming home-. It's hard to realize that he's not," said Kariann Riley, Calvin's mother as she broke down, in the same spot where her son was shot in the back almost one year ago. The 20 year old had been walking with his cousin along the Aquatic Park promenade near Van Ness Avenue when someone shot him and then fled.

"We're not going to stop we are going to find this killer," said Congresswoman Jackie Speier, who worked with the Mayor's Office to secure the reward money. It is not going to be a cold case.
We will not allow it to become a cold case."

"We have interviewed countless folks of associates and friends and at this time we just haven't found someone with a motive to kill him, although we have targets which I can't comment on," said Captain Jerry Marshall with the U.S. Park Police.

The killing happened August 6, 2016 just before 10 p.m. U.S Park Police released a suspect sketch and said a white 2013 four-door Hyundai Sonata may be linked to the crime.

Today investigators revealed that another vehicle, a 2006-2009 dark colored Audi A3 wagon may also be involved.

"It would provide us with closure, comfort knowing that the person is off the streets and can't hurt another human being, and take a beautiful life like my son- like he took my son's life," sobbed Riley.

Calvin was a rising baseball star who played at San Joaquin Delta College in Stockton but training hard to make a Division One team.

His family moved to San Mateo from Boston so Calvin could attend Junipero Serra High School in San Mateo and play baseball year round.

"Baseball was his passion... I'm gonna miss him, I'm gonna miss watching him play ball...[the killer] robbed that from us," said Riley.
