Havelock shooting suspect appears in court

The judge based the possible sentencing on maximum time Berry could receive, he said.

It is more likely a conviction would mean Berry could receive a minimum sentence of 18 years to a maximum sentence of 24 years, Thomas said.

Thomas said he did not have all the details of the shooting and could not comment on the pending investigation.

“The SBI has interviewed the three officers who were present in the house as well as the female friend of Mr. Berry so I will be reviewing all that when they submit their report,” Thomas said.

The friend called 911 to report Berry had fired a gun in the house, Thomas said.

Havelock police received a call about 12:20 p.m. Thursday about an armed person at 407 Webb Blvd.

Diane Miller, Havelock spokeswoman, said Thursday that when officers arrived, they heard gunshots and entered the home. Miller said the officers did not see Berry, who was in a back bedroom with the door closed. They then heard another gunshot and talked to Berry through the closed door.
