Officer Todd Young recovering
Officer Young, who was shot on Friday, August 27 attempting to serve an arrest warrant on a gang member, is recovering. He was hit twice in the pelvic region and transported to Highland Hospital Trauma Center. "Officer Young is at home now and is recovering well," said Detective Bill Veteran.
Officer Patrick Brower recovering
Officer Brower, 43, underwent extensive reconstructive surgery to his leg and foot after a man who fled in a stolen delivery van rammed him on his motorcycle early this month. According to Detective Veteran, Officer Brower is also doing well. His leg shows no indication of infection.
Investigation on "human" remains continues
On Sunday, October 17, two hikers located human remains (bones) in a remote area off of Morrison Canyon Road. Fremont Investigators along with Fremont Fire and members of the Alameda County Sheriff's Office conducted an extensive search of the area. The bones that were located appear to have been in the area for a relatively short period of time, one to two years, and are not those of a child. "Our Detectives continue to look for bones off of Morrison Canyon," said Detective Veteran. "They are searching a creek at the bottom of a very steep canyon so it is very slow going. They are finding bones and collecting them. We are unsure at this point if they are human," he said.
