Police have released two new surveillance videos depicting at least two persons of interest in the shooting. The first video shows a man pointing an object at another man in front of 1260 Sutter Ave.

The second video shows a man running out of a building and through a courtyard at 485 Fountain Ave.

Sarwar and the other officer heard shots and ran into 365 Fountain Ave. for cover when they realized that Sarwar had been shot, police said. It is still not clear if the officers were targeted.

Anyone with information in regards is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
