Tic Toc Cafe in Metairie is using its outdoor sign to express his support Peter Gold, a Good Samaritan who was shot last week.

The sign reads...

Peter Gold

Tulane Med Student

You saved a woman's lief without using a stethoscope.

You're gonna be a great doctor!

Get Well Soon!

Police say that Euric Cain, 21, shot and seriously wounded Gold as he attempted to stop an armed robbery near the corner of Magazine and St. Mary streets.

The incident stood out among the hundreds of shootings that take place every year in New Orleans because of surveillance footage that captured a suspect calmly taking aim as Gold lay crumpled on the ground, prevented from killing him at close range only because the gun jammed several times.

Gold’s family said in a statement released by Tulane on Tuesday that his condition had “progressively improved.”
