It didn't take a jury long to decide whether a man was guilty of wounding three police officers last Valentine's Day.
Richard Berry's trial began Monday in Craven County Superior Court.
The 61-year-old man was charged with shooting the Havelock police officers who went to his home on Webb Boulevard over concerns Berry might harm himself. All three officers were shot in the hand.
The jury came back with a guilty verdict around 12:30 p.m. They found him guilty of three counts of assault with a deadly weapon on a law enforcement officer, one count of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, and one count of assault with a deadly weapon with serious injury.
Judge Ben Alford sentenced Berry to serve between six and ten years in state prison.
