Killeen Police Investigate Suspicious Device

Killeen Police investigate suspicious device in northern Killeen.

Officers were called to the 1500 block of N. Gray St. at 9:14am on Thursday, April 03, 2014, after the owner of a red Chevy pickup was told there was a suspicious device located on the hood of his truck. Officers arrived and saw that the device appeared to be some type of explosive. The Fort Hood Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD) was contacted and asked to assist the Killeen Police Department by identifying and assessing the suspicious device.

The Fort Hood EOD arrived to the 1500 block of N. Gray St. and assessed the device. At approximately 1:00pm, after all assessments were made, it was determined that there were no explosive hazards found in the device.

There is no reason to believe this incident and the shooting incident on Fort Hood on Wednesday, April 2, 2014 have any relation.

This incident continues to be investigated and information will be released as it becomes available.
