MILITARY

Several loud booms heard throughout parts of Killeen Thursday are likely from Fort Hood, however, post officials are looking into what unit or units are training and with what weapons.

Last week, 1st Calvary Division soldiers were training with artillery and other weapons from the division’s 1st Battalion, 5th Cavalry Regiment and 3rd Battalion, 16th Field Artillery Regiment. That was part of a live-fire training exercise at Fort Hood that ended Saturday.
