Pro golfer Jean Siller shot dead in Georgia

(CNN) – Police are searching for the man who shot and killed pro golfer Jean Retail at a club north of Atlanta on Saturday.

Cope County Police responded to a report of a man shot dead at 2:20 p.m., police said in a news release that they found the 10th green retailer at the Pinnacle Country Club in Kansas.

Jean Siller, an employee of the club, was found unconscious “shot in the head” and died at the scene, police said.

A club member told CNN affiliate WXIA that the suspect shot and killed a 41-year-old retailer when he drove into a green in a white Ram 3500 pickup truck and went to see what was going on. WXIA later reported that the suspect had fled.

Police found the truck still green and found the bodies of the two men on the bed of the vehicle, the report said. Police said both victims sustained gunshot wounds.

One of the men was identified as Paul Pearson, the registered owner of the Ram 3500, but the other has not yet been identified, police said.

Police are still searching for the unidentified suspect.

Kennaso State University students, near the country club, received an alert from the university’s emergency management Twitter account about the incident.

Georgia State Golf Association (GSGA) mourns the death of Jean Siller. “All of us at GSGA are deeply saddened by the tragic events that took place today at Pinetry CC. Our thoughts and prayers go to Jean Siller’s family and friends, ”the association tweeted.

Siller leaves behind a wife and two children, ages 6 and 7, according to the Pinetry Country Club.

The Georgia Professional Golf Association tweeted, “Tragedy over the loss of our member Jean Siller of the Georgia Division PGA. Thoughts and prayers for his family and the Pinnacle Country Club family.”

The PGA of US President Jim Richardson also issued a statement: “We are deeply saddened by the mindless murder of PGA member Jean Siller yesterday at the Pine Tree Country Club in Georgia.” “America’s PGA sends our thoughts, prayers and condolences to his family, club and the Georgia PGA community.”

Jean Siller’s family created the GoFundMe page to help with expenses.
