Peter Gold ---- Medical Student
Euric Cain ---- Alleged Shooter
NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — The suspects connected to the shooting of a Tulane med school student made appearances before a magistrate judge in New Orleans to have bonds set.
The accused shooter, 21-year-old Euric Cain, faces a list of charges. He was ordered held on no bond in connection with the attempted murder and kidnapping charges. Cain also faces two armed robbery charges for which bond was set at $150,000 and $250,000.
Cain is accused of attacking a woman Friday morning (Nov. 20) at about 4:30. Then, when Tulane medical student Peter Gold stopped his car and attempted to intervene, Cain is accused of shooting Gold in the gut. Surveillance video of the shooting also shows Cain apparently trying to shoot Gold again but the gun jams.
Police arrested Cain at a house in the 2200 block of Delechaise Street. They say 17-year-old Nictoria Washington, who police identify as Cain's girlfriend, was also at the house. She was booked with accessory to armed robbery. Tuesday, her bond was set at $100,000.
At last word, Gold remained hospitalized in stable condition.
Police ID man accused of shooting Tulane medical studentNEW ORLEANS (AP) — New Orleans police have identified a man accused of shooting a medical student who stopped an apparent kidnapping.
Police say 21-year-old Euric Cain of New Orleans is wanted on charges of armed robbery, second-degree kidnapping and attempted first-degree murder.
Tulane University and Crimestoppers are offering up to $12,500 for information leading to arrest and indictment.
Surveillance video released by police shows a man dragging a woman toward an SUV early Friday, and 25-year-old Peter Gold pulling up and trying to help her.
Police say the man demanded money and shot Gold when he said he didn't have any. A misfire apparently foiled an attempt to shoot him in the head.
The woman was treated for minor injuries.
Tulane spokesman Keith Brannon says Gold's family said Sunday that he's improving but remains in guarded condition.
