NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

A grand jury on Thursday indicted a man accused of shooting a Tulane medical student and trying to kidnap a woman in the Lower Garden District.

The incident happened early Nov. 20 at Magazine and St. Mary Streets and was captured on surveillance video.

Police said Cain confessed to trying to kidnap a woman and then stealing her purse. When Tulane medical student Peter Gold stepped in to help the woman, Cain tried to rob him, too, police said. When Gold said he didn’t have any money, Cain shot him in the stomach. The video shows the suspect repeatedly trying to shoot Gold in the head, but the gun jammed.

Cain was indicted on charges of attempted first-degree murder, aggravated kidnapping, attempted armed robbery and armed robbery. Bond was set at $6 million.

Cain’s alleged girlfriend, Nictoria Washington, was also indicted for being an accessory after the fact to attempted first-degree murder. Police said Washington knew Cain was wanted by police but helped to hide him from authorities. Her bond was set at $1 million.

Gold was released from the hospital earlier this week and is expected to make a full recovery. The woman he helped save has not come forward publicly.
