More surgeries are scheduled this week for a Fremont police officer who was shot and critically injured while on duty.

Another emergency blood drive will be held for Officer Todd Young Wednesday at Santa Clara High School, the school he graduated from. The blood drive will be held at the science lecture hall between 2:15 p.m. and 6 p.m.

Officer Young remains in serious but stable condition after three surgeries at Highland Hospital in Oakland.

Meantime, Andrew Barrientos, the suspect accused of shooting Young says he did not know the person he shot was a police officer. He has been charged with attempted murder.

Young was in civilian clothes when he and another officer tried to arrest Barrientos last week in East Oakland.
