LOWELL, Massachusetts — Police say an officer who shot an armed suspect during a home invasion has been placed on administrative leave.

Police responded Saturday evening to a home in Lowell where they confronted two armed men.

Police say the officer shot 48-year-old Timothy Berry, of Haverhill, after Berry pointed a handgun at him.

The officer was uninjured. He was placed on administrative leave per the department's standard procedure.

Berry suffered non-life threatening injuries and is being treated at a Boston hospital. He's charged with armed home invasion and assault with a handgun.

The other suspect, 46-year-old Christopher Covey, of Groveland, was arrested and charged with armed home invasion.

Police say evidence indicates the men were impersonating police officers.

Police recovered handcuffs and fake police badges, as well as marijuana and cash.
