Havelock shooting suspect appears in court

“He indicated that he was just going to stay in that room and bleed out,” Miller said of Berry. “Concerned for his safety, they (the officers) entered that room and had a confrontation with the suspect. His injuries were not as a result of the confrontation.”

Borton was back on the job on Friday, evening making an appearance at a Black History Month event at Havelock Middle School, where he received applause from students and staff.

Boone is expected back on the job next week, according to Havelock officials. They offered no information on Fahnestock’s return.

“This could have had a much different ending for both Mr. Berry and also for the three officers who entered the room,” Thomas said. “I believe the officers entered the house and the room thinking that were trying to help someone who they thought had attempted suicide and it turned out to be a different situation.

“We are very fortunate that the injuries were no more serious than they were to the three officers because it was a very dangerous and involved situation.”
