Gene Siller, Georgia golf course shooting: Suspect still at large

Police were still searching Tuesday for a suspect who shot three people at a Georgia country club this weekend.

The incident unfolded before 2:30 p.m. at the 10th hole of the Pinetree Country Club in Kennesaw, about 25 miles north of Atlanta, on Saturday after a pickup truck drove onto the course.

Country club employee Eugene “Gene” Siller was found dead with a gunshot wound to the head, Cobb County police said. Upon further investigation, police found two other men dead in the bed of the truck. Paul Pierson, the registered owner of the truck, was identified as one of the men, and authorities had not yet named the second.

The Cobb County Police Department said Siller was not targeted “but rather was killed because he witnessed an active crime taking place,” according to a statement sent to USA TODAY by department spokesman Wayne Delk.
