Man sentenced in shooting of Fremont cop

Submitted By AP Wire Service

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP), Dec 17 - An alleged gang member has been sentenced to two life terms in the shooting of a Fremont police officer.

An Alameda County judge issued the sentenced against 21-year-old Andrew Barrientos on Friday. Barrientos was convicted last month of attempted murder of a police officer, assault on an officer and weapons charges in the August 2010 shooting of Officer Todd Young.

Authorities say the 41-year-old Young was shot when he and another officer tried to serve an arrest warrant on Barrientos. Barrientos was also convicted of carjacking a vehicle at gunpoint as he fled the scene.

Young survived the shooting, but was hospitalized for seven weeks and underwent several surgeries.

He said on Friday that he plans to return to full duty next summer on the same task force he was on when he was shot.
