Upon arrival, deputies made contact with Berry, who repeatedly placed a gun to his head and threatened to shoot himself. Deputies negotiated with the teen for more than 16 minutes and were able to get the young boy to lower his weapon. After Berry lowered his firearm, he attempted to retrieve it again. However, deputies responded by deploying a less lethal round, which struck the suspect in the hand with a 40 mm launcher.
