Update on Peter Gold

Dear Tulane Community:

I know you share my gratitude and relief that the suspect in Friday’s shooting of Tulane medical student Peter Gold has been arrested.

We are indebted to the New Orleans Police Department and the U.S. Marshal Service for apprehending the suspect in this case, which has deeply affected the entire Tulane community. We continue to keep Peter and the Gold family utmost in our thoughts and ask everyone to do the same. We also ask that everyone continue to respect the Gold family's need for privacy.

Peter continues to improve and remains in guarded condition. His story has attracted international attention, as people from around the world marvel at his bravery, compassion and strength.

Those who have known Peter the best and the longest—his family, his friends and his Tulane family—also marvel at his courage and character as we direct all our thoughts and prayers to his healing.
