NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

Peter Gold, a Good Samaritan who was shot trying to help an armed robbery victim, has been released from University Medical Center, according to a spokesman with Tulane University. Gold is medical student at the school.

The spokesman did not disclose Gold's condition or what day he was released from the hospital, but said he is expected to make a full recovery. 

On Nov. 20, around 4 a.m., Gold stepped in as he saw a man trying to abduct a woman near Magazine and St. Mary streets in the Lower Garden Disctrict. But Gold became a victim himself in the process. The gunman shot Gold in the stomach and left him to die after the gun appeared to jam three times. 

The entire incident was captured by several surveillance cameras.
