A doctor at Johns Hopkins Hospital was shot in an attempted carjacking Friday morning in Northeast Baltimore, the hospital and police said.

Dr. Madhu Subramanian, 38, was driving to work at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center around 7 a.m. when he was shot near Loch Raven Boulevard and East 33rd Street in the city’s Ednor Gardens section.


Hopkins officials said Subramanian was released on Friday. Police did not provide any information about a suspect.

Community leader pastor Cleveland Mason sees the shooting as another stunning signal of a spiraling gun violence problem when the people saving the lives of a community being battered by violence are now getting shot.

“The people who help us to navigate our way through these issues, it’s not just violence between gang members it’s no longer just a simple robbery people are brazenly taking other people’s lives,” he said.


This is the second violent incident this week connected to Johns Hopkins Hospital. On Monday, three men were shot near the hospital’s main campus in East Baltimore around 10:30 a.m. along North Broadway. Branville Bard, vice president for public safety at the hospital, told employees that their safety was the institution’s highest priority.


Baltimore has seen a rise in carjackings in recent months. There have been 137 carjackings citywide so far this year, a 67 percent increase compared with last year. Forty of those have occurred in the Northeastern District, where Subramanian was shot.
