Good Samaritan Shot Trying To Stop Thug Dragging Woman Down Street [VIDEO]
New Orleans police released surveillance video of the shooting of a man who intervened trying to save a woman who was being dragged down a New Orleans street early Friday morning.
The incident took place at Magazine and St. Mary streets in the Lower Garden District, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
Police released the graphic video in the hope that someone would recognize the shooter or his getaway vehicle.
Police said Peter Gold, a fourth-year medical student at Tulane University, was driving in the area and saw a man dragging a woman down the street. Gold pulled over, got out of his vehicle and approached the man. The man pulled a gun on Gold and demanded his property. Gold said he had none so the man shot him in the abdomen.
The video shows the man repeatedly tried to fire a ‘coup de grace’ head shot at Gold as he lay crumpled on the sidewalk but the gun kept jamming. The man gave up and then got into an SUV and sped away.
Gold was reported to be in guarded condition.
