A man drove a pickup truck onto a golf course in suburban Atlanta on Saturday afternoon. When Gene Siller, a professional golfer who worked at Pinetree Country Club in Kennesaw, approached the white Ram 3500 pickup truck to see what was going on, he was fatally shot. 41-year-old Siller was pronounced dead at the scene with an obvious shot in the head. The shooter then fled.

Police officers arrived at the scene and discovered the bodies of two men in the back of the pickup truck. The two men also appeared to have gunshot wounds. One of the men has been identified as Paul Pierson, who is the owner of the pickup truck. It is unclear whether he had any connection with the country club. The third victim has not been identified.

The shooter has not been identified and investigators are still trying to find out what led to the killings. The shooter was apparently spotted about a mile from the country club on Saturday afternoon, according to tweets from nearby Kennesaw State University. Shortly after Siller’s death, the university tweeted a warning of a shooting near campus and an “armed and dangerous” suspect was on the run.
