Three men, including golf pro Eugene Siller, were killed in a shooting Saturday at a Georgia golf course.

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 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.

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.

USA TODAY has reached out to the Cobb County Police for comment.

A member of the club told 11 Alive that the shooter drove his vehicle near the 10th hole of the course when Siller went to see what was going on and was shot.

Pinetree Country Club is located in Kennesaw, Georgia, about 25 miles north of Atlanta. Nearby Kennesaw State University tweeted Saturday that there was no credible threats to campus. The university’s men’s and women’s golf teams often play the golf course.

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.
