Police searching for suspect after golf pro killed, 2 others found dead at Georgia country club

Police are trying to find out who killed three men — including golf pro Gene Siller — whose bodies were found on the grounds of an Atlanta-area country club.

Cobb County police responded to a report of a person shot around 2:20 p.m. Saturday and found Siller near the green of the 10th hole of the Pinetree Country Club in Kennesaw, where he worked as the golf pro, according to a news release from the police department. Siller was found unresponsive with an “apparent gunshot wound to the head” and was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

The suspect had driven to the green in a white Ram 3500 pickup truck and shot 41-year-old Siller when he went to see what was going on, a member of the club told CNN affiliate WXIA. The suspect then fled. Police are still searching for the suspect, who has not been identified. Investigators have asked residents to check their doorbell video and and CCTV footage for any clues.

Students at Kennesaw State University, whose campus is near the country club, received an alert regarding the incident from the university’s Emergency Management Twitter account. Later on Saturday, they were told to resume normal activities because, “No credible threat to campus is indicated at this time.” The Georgia State Golf Association expressed its condolences for Siller’s death.

“All of us at the GSGA are deeply saddened by the tragic events that occurred earlier today at Pinetree CC. Our thoughts and prayers are with Gene Siller’s family and friends,” the association tweeted. Siller leaves behind a wife and two children, ages 6 and 7, according to the Pinetree Country Club.
