Police said earlier this week that they believed Siller was killed “because he witnessed an active crime in progress.”
“It does not appear that he (Siller) was targeted,” but was killed because it “occurred during an ongoing crime involving the unknown suspect and the two deceased men,” said the Cobb County Police Department in a press release.
Police said they were called with a report of a person shot on Saturday afternoon and found Siller – the club’s golf manager – shot in the head near the green on the course’s 10th hole.
A truck was on the green and police found the bodies of the other two men in the bed of the truck – both of whom had also been shot, police said.
Someone had gone green in the truck – a white Ram 3500 pickup truck – and shot Siller when Siller arrived to see what was going on, a club member told CNN affiliate WXIA. The gunman then fled, WXIA reported.
One of the men killed was Paul Pierson, the registered owner of the Ram 3500, police said. The name of the other man killed has not been released.
Pierson and the other man killed “appear to have no connection with the location,” Cobb County police said Tuesday.
Siller, 46, leaves behind a wife and two children, aged 6 and 7, according to the Pinetree Country Club.
This is a developing story and will be updated.
