NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - New Orleans police and the U.S. Marshals Service on Monday arrested a man accused of shooting a Tulane medical student.

Euric Cain, 21, was picked at a home in the 2200 block of Delechaise Street at 11:30 a.m. Police also arrested Cain's girlfriend, 17-year-old Nictoria Washington as an accessory after the fact to the crime.

Cain faces attempted first-degree murder, second-degree kidnapping and two counts of armed robbery. Police Chief Michael Harrison said Cain gave detectives a full confession.

Police say Cain shot the medical student just before 4 a.m. on Nov. 20 at the intersection of Magazine and St. Mary streets.

The shooting attracted national attention after the NOPD released surveillance video of the gunman dragging a woman and then shooting the 25-year-old medical student in his stomach. After shooting him once, he aimed the gun at the victim's head and tried to shoot him three more times. His gun appeared to jam each time.

Both victims were taken to the hospital by EMS after the incident. The female victim was treated for minor injuries and released.

Tulane University announced Saturday that it was offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and indictment of Cain.

The shooting victim remains in the hospital. He is expected to recover from his injuries.
