OAKLAND, Calif. — The shooting of a Fremont police officer in East Oakland could have been the result of a "tragic misunderstanding" by an alleged gang member, the suspect's attorney said Tuesday after the defendant made his first court appearance in front of dozens of uniformed officers.
Andrew Barrientos, a 20-year-old suspected Union City gang member, is accused of trying to kill Officer Todd Young Aug. 27 as the officer sought to arrest him on a warrant.
