Suspect Berry also injured

“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.”

Miller said the officers subdued Berry. She said she had no information on whether any of the officers fired their weapons during the incident.

She said the injured officers were shot in their lower extremities, hands or fingers.

Miller indicated there was a woman inside the home when the incident began but could not say whether she was inside the home when the officers entered.

As of Thursday afternoon, Berry had not been charged, but District Attorney Scott Thomas indicated charges could be brought Thursday night, and Berry could make a first court appearance on Friday morning.

Miller said she had no information about a possible motive in the case.

Miller said the State Bureau of Investigation had been called in because officers were injured in the shooting.
