The man accused of shooting a Tulane University medical student who was attempting to intervene in an armed robbery and apparent abduction was indicted Thursday.
Euric Cain, 21, was indicted on counts of aggravated kidnapping, attempted first-degree murder, armed robbery and attempted armed robbery.
Criminal District Court Judge Franz Zibilich set a total $6 million bail for Cain.
Authorities allege that Cain shot medical student Peter Gold as Gold tried to stop Cain from robbing a woman near the corner of St. Mary and Magazine streets early on the morning of Nov. 20. The robber had been dragging the woman down the sidewalk toward his vehicle.
Graphic video showed the robber shooting Gold once in the stomach and trying to shoot him in the head at least twice more. The gun jammed, possibly saving Gold’s life.
A family spokeswoman said Wednesday that Gold has been released from the hospital and his recuperation is going well.
Cain’s 17-year-old girlfriend, Nictoria Washington, was indicted on a charge of being an accessory after the fact to attempted first-degree murder. Police said Cain was found in a house with her on Nov. 23. She reportedly told authorities that she knew Cain was wanted.
Zibilich set a $500,000 bail for Washington.
