Shot at point blank range, life spared by jammed gun; hero med student saves woman from mugger

Tulane medical student Peter Gold is lucky to be alive after coming to the aid of woman he saw being mugged.

As seen on surveillance video released by the New Orleans Police Department, Gold, 25, is seen getting out of his car early Friday morning after a man drags a woman down the street — it looks as if the good Samaritan was making a call on his cellphone.

“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, according to NBC News.

“The victim explained to the suspect repeatedly that he did not have any cash,” police continued. “The suspect became enraged and shot the victim once in the stomach.”


Police say the gunman, a black male wearing a dark colored hooded sweatshirt, tried three more times to shoot Gold, but “the gun jammed.”


The criminal can be seen here pointing the weapon at Gold’s head, which would have resulted in almost certain death had the gun not malfunctioned. The fourth year medical student is expected to make a full recovery.

The woman lost her purse, but was otherwise unharmed.


Police are asking for the public’s assistance in apprehending the gunman and are offering a reward of $2,500 for information that leads to the arrest of the suspect.

Tulane University is also offering a $10,000 reward for information that leads to the suspect’s arrest.
