Three men were killed in a shooting Saturday at a Georgia country club, including the club’s golf professional.
The shooter has not been identified, Cobb County police told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Police responded Saturday afternoon to a call about a shooting at Pinetree Country Club, CBS 46 reported. When officers arrived, they found club employee Gene Siller, 41, with a gunshot wound to the head at the 10th hole. He was pronounced dead at the scene, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
Siller was the director of golf for the club and father of two, according to media reports.
Police then found two other men who had been shot in the bed of a Dodge Ram 3500, the outlet reported. One man was identified as Paul Pierson, the owner of the truck.
Friends of Siller held a remembrance for him at the golf course Monday morning.
John Lavender told WSB-TV he was at the country club with his father when he heard the gunshots.
“It’s mind-blowing,” Lavender told the TV station. “Growing up here, it’s nothing I would have imagined here happening in this city. I can’t understand how and why this actually happened.”
Pinetree Country Club is located in Kennesaw, about 25 miles north of Atlanta. Nearby Kennesaw State University tweeted Saturday that there was no credible threat to campus.
PGA of America and its Georgia section confirmed Siller’s death on social media.
“Tragedy has stricken the Georgia Section PGA in the loss of our Member, Gene Siller. Thoughts and prayers for his family and the Pinetree Country Club family,” Georgia PGA tweeted.
PGA President Jim Richerson said on Facebook the organization was heartbroken to learn of Siller’s death.
“The PGA of America sends our thoughts, prayers and deepest sympathy to his family, club and the Georgia PGA community,” the post said.
