"Kent" Harris, Unicoi County Sheriff's Office, announced the arrest of GREGORY LEE BERRY, age 20, last known address Erwin, Tennessee. Agents of the FBI and Unicoi County Sheriff's Office arrested BERRY early this morning in Erwin, Tennessee.

BERRY was wanted by Wayne County, Michigan, authorities on charges of Murder in the First Degree, Assault with Intent to Rob while Armed, Felony Murder, and Habitual Offender Third Offense Notice. BERRY is charged in the September 5, 2003, slaying of an individual attempting to pump gasoline at a service station in Detroit, Michigan. According to information received from Detroit Police Department, BERRY fled the State of Michigan to the State of Tennessee after the slaying. This information helped lead to BERRY's apprehension.
