Barrientos opened fire on the officers. Two rounds struck Young in the pelvic area. Both officers returned fire. Barrientos unsuccessfully attempted to carjack one vehicle, and then carjacked a green Mazda 626 before fleeing the scene.

Young, who required 60 units of blood during surgery, is in critical but stable condition.
