The alleged gang member who nearly killed a Fremont (Calif.) Police officer received two life terms from an Alameda County judge.
Andrew Barrientos, 21, was convicted in November of attempted murder of a police officer, assault on an officer and weapons charges in the August 2010 shooting of Officer Todd Young, reports the San Francisco Chronicle.
