Havelock shooting suspect appears in court

Published: Friday, February 15, 2013 at 01:58 PM.

Since Berry was charged with two Class C felonies, Alexander said he was facing a maximum of nearly 20 years in prison if convicted.

Berry said he did not have the paperwork and did not understand the charges.

He was also asked if he had an attorney to represent him.

“I can only represent myself,” Berry said.

Alexander ordered Berry to the N.C. Department of Corrections medical unit for safe keeping, and set his next court appearance for March 1.

Thomas said the report from Craven County Jail, where Berry was being held after he was released from CarolinaEast Medical Center, recommended he be kept at DOC for safe keeping, partly because he threatened to harm himself. But Thomas didn’t have any specific details.

Thomas said he also asked that Berry be kept in the medical unit of the state prison because he had medical conditions, recent surgeries unrelated to the shooting.
