East Cobb man indicted in double shooting of electrical workers

An east Cobb man accused of opening fire on two electrical contractors as they left his home in March was indicted this week on a host of charges.
Larry Epstein, 69, was indicted by a Cobb County grand jury Thursday on charges of malice murder, felony murder, two counts of aggravated assault and two counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, court records show.

Epstein is accused of shooting 21-year-old Jake Horne and his boss, Gordon Montcalm, as they left his Wellington Lane home on March 6 after a day’s work.

Horne was shot in the head and later died.

Montcalm, who was shot in the face, neck and arm, survived his injuries, police said.

It’s unclear what led to the shooting, but detectives testified that part of the incident was captured on Epstein’s doorbell camera.

At a hearing in March, Cobb police said Epstein could be heard in the video telling Montcalm “you killed my pets" before shooting the electrician several times. Investigators said they found no evidence of any pets being harmed.
