A rapper who is accused of shooting a professional golf player dead had two other victims bound and gagged in a truck, according to an arrest warrant.

Bryan Anthony Rhoden, 23, was arrested on Thursday (June 8th) and has since been charged with the three murders, The Sun reports.

His arrest followed a five-day police manhunt after the murder of pro-golfer Gene Siller, 46.

Rhoden is an aspiring rapper who performs under the name B Ro. He has over 18,000 followers on Instagram and recently released a mixtape called "Made It Out."

Rhoden allegedly shot Mr Siller on the golf course of a Georgia country club near the tenth hole.

Rhoden had left a white Ram 3500 pickup truck on the golf course, according to an arrest warrant obtained by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Police discovered two more bodies that were bound and gagged with duct tape in the back of the truck.

Cobb County Police believe the two victims were already dead when the truck was driven onto the course.

Tim Cox, Cobb County Police Chief, said during a press conference on Thursday that Rhoden will face three counts of murder, three counts of aggravated assault, and two counts of kidnapping.

Officers are still investigating and have not yet established a motive for the crimes.

Rhoden was booked into DeKalb County jail just before 2am on Sunday morning, and was released on bond just two days later.

Police believe that Siller was not an intended victim, and was killed after he witnessed another crime.

The two additional victims have been identified as Henry Valdez, 46, of California, and Paul Pierson, 76, of Kansas.

Mr Pierson was the owner of the truck and he also owned Eco Environmental Remediation Services in Nevada.

He was reportedly in Georgia for business, according to the Daily Mail.

Jail records obtained by FOX5 show that Rhoden was arrested for DUI, providing false ID, and other vehicle and traffic charges just hours before the bodies were found in the abandoned truck.

Police Chief Cox said: "As this remains an active case and investigation, we will be limited on the amount of information or details we can release.

"But with the suspect in custody, our investigation will continue to work the case to its completion and move it forward to the Cobb County District Attorney's Office for prosecution."
