Officers from the Johnson City Police Department (JCPD) were sent to the 1900 Block of Lone Oak Road at approximately 9:15 p.m. in response to a complaint that there had been gunshots heard in that section of the road, as stated in a press statement that was issued by the Johnson City Police Department (JCPD) and made public by the department. The press statement was made public by the department. The complaint was lodged in response to a press announcement that said there had been reports of gunshots heard in the area surrounding the roadway in question. Due to the fact that 32-year-old Elijah Berry had already passed away by the time the police arrived, they were unable to perform an autopsy on him before he was officially declared dead.
An incident that took place on Tuesday evening in Johnson City resulted in the arrest of a man on suspicion of murder in the second degree, according to remarks made by police authorities in the surrounding region. The dispute took place on Tuesday. The event happened on the same day as everything else did, along with everything else. According to the statement, the investigation that was carried out by the police indicated that Berry and Ronald Bernier, who resides in Johnson City, were involved in an incident that ultimately led to Bernier allegedly shooting Berry. The investigation was based on the findings of the investigation that was carried out by the police. The results of the inquiry into this matter that was carried out by the police have shown this to be the case.
Bernier currently resides in Johnson City as his permanent residence. At this point in the investigation, Bernier is being looked at as a possible suspect in connection with this matter.
