Student shot while trying to stop robbery

A Tulane University medical student was shot in the abdomen while trying to stop an armed robbery in New Orleans early Friday morning. The incident was caught on surveillance video.

Surveillance video released by the New Orleans Police Department shows a hooded black man attacking a woman around 4:30 a.m. Friday. Moments later, Peter Gold, 25, stops his car and
attempts to help the woman.

"The victim drove up and attempted to assist the woman at which point the suspect pointed a gun at him and demanded money," New Orleans Police said in a statement.

"The victim explained to the suspect repeatedly that he did not have any cash. The suspect became enraged and shot the victim once in the stomach," the statement said.
