A doctor at Johns Hopkins Hospital was discharged from hospital after being shot Friday morning in northeast Baltimore.

Police say officers responded to reports of a shooting on Loch Raven Boulevard.

“I’m leaving because I’m going to work, then I hear all these gunshots and everything and sirens, then I call my family to say be safe and I heard gunshots. It’s disturbing,” she said.

Just after 7 a.m., police moved to the area to report a shooting. They found a 38-year-old man with gunshot wounds.

The victim was later identified as a doctor at Johns Hopkins.

One of the trauma surgeons who treated the victim tweeted: “Nothing prepares you when the person you have to deal with is one of your own.”

“It saddens me because someone is going to work every day to take care of people, to help people. To heal people and now they are in a position where they need help and need to be healed” , said the woman.

Another woman, who also wanted to be identified, said she had recently been the victim of a crime in the area and believes the city and community need to do more to prevent violence.

“I think for my community and for our neighbors, we all just want to feel safe. We want to be able to get out of our homes and feel safe and know that no one is going to try to hurt us. We deserve that. It’s a basic right,” she said.
