Cobb County police are searching for a man they believe is suspected of committing a triple homicide on Saturday, July 3, at the Pinetree Country Club in Kennesaw, Ga.
Among the victims were professional golfer, Gene Siller, authorities said in a statement to People Magazine.
Authorities responded to a report of a person shot at around 2:20 p.m. Saturday, and found Siller near the green of the 10th hole of the Pinetree Country Club, where he worked as a golf pro, according to a press release from the police department.
Siller, Pinetree’s director of golf, was found unresponsive with an “apparent gunshot wound to the head” and was pronounced dead at the scene, police released in a statement.
The suspect had driven to the green in a white Ram 3500 pickup truck and shot Siller, 41, when he went to see what was going on, a member of the club told CNN. The suspect then fled the scene.
Police discovered the truck still on the green and found the bodies of two men in the bed of the pickup truck, according to a press release. Both victims also suffered “apparent gunshot wounds.”
According to CNN, one of the victims found in the pickup truck was identified as Paul Pierson, the registered owner of the Ram 3500, but the other victim has not yet been identified.
Investigators told CNN that they are asking nearby residents to check their doorbell video for any clues.
“All of us at the GSGA are deeply saddened by the tragic events that occurred early today at Pinetree CC,” the Georgia State Golf Association said in a tweet on Saturday. “Our thoughts and prayers are with Gene Siller’s family and friends.”
CNN reported that Siller is survived by his wife and two children, aged 6 and 7, according to the Pinetree Country Club.
