A doctor was shot on his way to work on Friday, April 1, and was left with gunshot wounds.
Dr. Madhu Subramanian, a 38-year-old physician and assistant professor of surgery at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, was shot in an attempted carjacking in Baltimore, Maryland, approximately 7 a.m.
A male was found injured on the 1200 block of East 36th Street in Northeast Baltimore a few minutes later, according to city police.
According to the hospital’s website, Subramanian specializes in acute care surgery, trauma surgery, surgical critical care, burn treatment, and general surgery.
Subramanian has already been released from the hospital after receiving treatment, according to Johns Hopkins officials.
Johns Hopkins Medicine CEO Paul Rothman and Johns Hopkins Health System President Kevin Sowers wrote in an email: “With his permission, we can share that Dr. Madhu Subramanian, a trauma and acute care surgeon, was on his way to work at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center when the incident occurred near the 3600 block of Loch Raven Boulevard.
“Thankfully, Dr. Subramanian was not seriously injured and has been treated and released.”
Dr. Joseph Sakran, a fellow Johns Hopkins surgery, addressed his colleague’s shooting in a Twitter thread.
