NEW ORLEANS, La. - A Tulane University medical student was driving his car down a street in New Orleans when he stopped to render aid to a woman who appeared to be getting attacked. When he approached, the alleged attacker opened fire, hitting the student in the stomach, police said.

As 25-year-old Peter Gold lay bleeding on the ground, the assailant pointed the gun at his head attempting to shot him again, but the gun jammed, investigators said.

Surveillance video shows an apparently drunk woman stumbling down the street at 4 a.m. Friday, according to police. On the video, a man approaches the woman before dragging her down the sidewalk toward an SUV.

Gold, who was driving by, saw it, too. He got out of his car and approached the man before getting shot by the alleged gunman, police said. Gold repeatedly told the assailant he had no money on him and the suspect became enraged, stealing the woman`s purse and speeding away, investigators said.

The woman was released from a hospital with minor injuries. Gold is recovering in the hospital.

On Sunday, police identified the suspected gunman as 21-year-old Euric Cain.

Tulane University officials are offering a $12,500 reward for information leading to the arrest and indictment of the suspect, according to ABC News.

In a statement, the university said Gold is "an outstanding student who represents the best of Tulane."

    There are low quality people of every race/creed/color, “Liberal Suck” exemplifies this on a daily basis with the hatred he spews.

  • Proof that gun laws will never work! Courts and prisons just let the bad guys walk.

    Criminals will always get a weapon. Responsible citizens will always take the first hit. It is inevitable. Legislation against weapons only further restricts the law abiding citizens and makes them more vulnerable. Bad world we live in.
