A friend of Sealer said Tuesday that members of the country club where Gene Celler was shot dead were still in the dark about why the killings took place.
“It doesn’t make sense,” Brian Catrick, a member of the Pinetree Country Club in Kennesaw and a SiriusXM radio host PGA Tour, told CNN’s New Day.
“I think the reaction of the members now is still very profound shock.”
Cobb County police said they called for a report of a person being shot at about 2:20 p.m. Saturday and found Sealer, the golf club’s manager, with a bullet to the head near the green hole on 10th course.
A truck was on the green, and officers found the bodies of two other men in the bed of the truck – both of whom had been shot, according to police.
Police said one of the dead was Paul Pearson, the registered owner of the Ram 3500. The name of the other dead was not released.
Police said they are trying to determine what happened and have not released the name of the suspect.
Investigators told CNN they are asking residents to check their doorbell video for any clues.
Sealer leaves behind a wife and two children
Sealer, 41, left behind a wife and two children, ages 6 and 7, according to the Pinetree Country Club.
US PGA President Jim Richerson also issued a statement saying, “We are truly saddened to hear of the senseless murder that took place yesterday at the Pine Tree Country Club in Georgia that claimed the life of PGA member Gene Siler,” the statement read. “PGA America sends our thoughts, prayers, and deepest sympathy to his family, club, and Georgia PGA community.”
Sebastian Schott, a friend of Sealer’s, said the community was in shock.
“It only later surprised me that this happened at our country club,” he told CNN on Monday. “I still can’t believe it.”
He said Sealer was well-liked and “treated everyone with respect”.
The Sealers set up a GoFundMe page to help with finances.
