Second Surgery for Fremont Officer
OAKLAND, Calif. (KCBS) _ It was another surgery for Fremont Police Officer Todd Young on Sunday, who was badly wounded Friday in Oakland while attempting to serve an arrest warrant.
The 39-year-old was still listed in critical, but stable condition as of Sunday afternoon. The second surgery was to repair a badly damaged bladder.
The initial surgery required 60 pints of blood and a blood drive on Sunday in Pleasant Hill drew crowds to the Red Cross Blood Center, according to Red Cross spokeswoman Sara O’Brien.
“It’s been a great outpouring from the community,” she said. “We’ve had people who’ve said they would give blood years ago and they didn’t think about it before, and they’ve heard there is a need. So they’re coming through.”
20-year-old Andrew Barrientos was taken into custody near the U.S.-Mexico border on Saturday afternoon.
Authorities had been looking for him since Friday, when he allegedly shot Young multiple times in Oakland.
