An attempted carjacking in Baltimore left a doctor with gunshot wounds on his morning commute Friday, according to local reports.

Dr. Madhu Subramanian, a 38-year-old surgeon at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center and an assistant professor of surgery, was on his way to work around 7 a.m. 

City police said they found a man injured on the 1200 block of East 36th Street in Northeast Baltimore a few minutes later.

Dr. Madhu Subramanian, a 38-year-old surgeon at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center and an assistant professor of surgery, was on his way to work around 7 a.m.  when he was shot during a carjacking.

BALTIMORE SHOOTING LEAVES 3 MEN DEAD IN VEHICLE

Subramanian specializes in acute care surgery, trauma surgery, surgical critical care, burn care and general surgery, according to the hospital’s website.

Johns Hopkins leaders said Subramanian has already been released in an email to staff obtained by the Baltimore Sun.

“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,” Johns Hopkins Medicine CEO Paul Rothman and Johns Hopkins Health System President Kevin Sowers wrote, according to the paper. “Thankfully, Dr. Subramanian was not seriously injured and has been treated and released.”

The shooting comes as Baltimore and other large American cities see skyrocketing violence, with robberies, shootings and homicides on the rise. Later Friday, police said they responded to another shooting and found two young men, ages 19 and 20, with gunshot wounds. Both of their injuries were considered not life-threatening, according to authorities.

Dr. Joseph Sakran, a fellow Johns Hopkins surgery, addressed his colleague’s shooting in a Twitter thread Friday after he said he treated his Subramanian’s injuries.

“We are so grateful he survived this horrific incident and will be OK,” he wrote.

“In the heat of the moment, we often compartmentalize the emotion that goes along with caring for these injured patients. And we do that in order to effectively make one methodical decision after the other to save a person’s life. How do you do that when it’s one of your own?”

Sakran, who survived a shooting himself as a teenager, added that “Gun Violence is a Public Health Crisis that we face daily in Baltimore, and communities all across America” and called on society to “do better.”

Anyone with information on the shooting was asked to contact Baltimore detectives at (410) 396-2444.

Deputies in Zavala County, Texas, caught nearly two dozen illegal immigrants during four separate traffic stops early Sunday, including 13 migrants smuggled in a pickup truck while cloaked in camouflage clothing, authorities said.

In total, the sheriff’s office said it apprehended 22 illegal immigrants, while 10 others fled after bailing from the vehicles.

In one case, the sheriff’s office said a deputy stopped a black Chevy pickup for a traffic violation on U.S. 57 east of La Pryor. As the deputy went to speak with the driver, he spotted multiple individuals wearing camouflage clothing lying in the bed of the truck.

The deputy then found more individuals inside the vehicle with the driver, who claimed they were all her cousins, according to officials.

In a second incident, a deputy pulled over a Chrysler van for a traffic violation. When the deputy exited his cruiser to approach the vehicle, it sped away and prompted a short pursuit.
