FREEMONT, Calif. — A Fremont police officer who was shot and critically wounded while attempting to arrest a man in Oakland was improving Sunday after undergoing a successful second round of surgery to repair his bladder.

But Officer Todd Young, 39, remained under heavy sedation and in critical condition at Highland Hospital in Oakland, and will probably need more surgery this week, said Fremont Police Chief Craig Steckler.
