New Orleans - A family spokesman says a Tulane University medical student shot while stopping what authorities described as an apparent kidnapping has been released from a hospital.


Sara Roen Brady of Winter Park, Florida, reached by phone Wednesday, says 25-year-old Peter Gold is expected to recover fully. She declined to provide further details.

Online criminal court records show 21-year-old Euric Cain is being held without bond on charges of kidnapping and attempted murder, with bond on two lesser charges totaling $400,000.

Police-released surveillance video showed a man dragging a woman toward an SUV on Nov. 20 and Gold pulling up. It shows a man shooting Gold in the abdomen, then trying to shoot him in the head.

The woman escaped with minor injuries. Police say the gunman drove off with her purse.
