the u.s./mexico border late this afternoon. police had an idea he was in the area because they had been tracking his cell phone signal. officers in san diego were aware he might be in the area. one officer close to the border spotted a car that looked like it might be barrientos. he followed him to a parking lot. the officer drew his gun and arrested him on the spot. he said there was no altercation during the arrest. barrientos was armed and was another male companion. he is accused of shooting under cover police officer yesterday. he was working with a partner doing warrant sweeps. he attempted to carjack one car and successfully carjacked another to get away from the scene.

condition. doctors are describing his condition as touch and go. the fact that officer young is stable, meaning hi condition has not changed is at least a good sign. he lost a tremendous amount of blood and received a transfusion of 60 units while undergoing surgery last night. he suffered gunshot wounds to his pelvis and groin. he will require further surgeries possibly tomorrow. young's fellow officers continue to gather to officer support to his close friends and family. he is 39 years old, married, with two children. he worked for the fremont pd for six years, before that in newark for ten years. in contrast to the oakland pd this is the first time an officer from fremont has been critically wounded in the line of duty. >> my heart and our prayers are
going out to the officer. he is in critical condition. everybody in the bay area and law enforcement are hoping he pulls through. >> reporter: because officer young has lost so much blood you can donate some blood. go to the american red cross. donate in the name of officer todd young. the type does not matter because we are told he is a universe alrepient. >> here is a picture of the suspecalpolice just arrested in san diego. 20-year-old andrew barrientos. police in southern california reportedly tracked a signature cal from his cell phone. they arrested him near the boarding crossing to mexico. we will continue to monitor this story. we will update this story later in this newscast. police have arrested the man

barrientos' cell phone signal. that what led them to believe he was headed to southern california presumably to cross into mexico. san diego police got a heads up. one officer alertly kept an eye out. he saw barrientos pull into a parking lot. heas able to arrest him without any further violence. diane. >> garvin, thank you very much for that update. we are looking at pictures of oakland, where the original shooting happened where the officer todd young was shot yesterday in oakland. he was a fremont police officer doing some undercover work in oakland during that shooting. first heat, then cool now the wind. there is one more weather change, beli iadg ouwa
