FORT LEE, Va. – Fort Lee Police and Army Explosive Ordnance Disposal personnel are responding to an apparently undetonated Civil War-era cannonball discovered this morning on a training range here.

The area is secure and an Army EOD team from Fort Belvoir is en route to safely dispose of the 4-inch shell.

Prince George County and Hopewell residents living near training areas adjacent to River Road may hear a loud boom if on-site detonation of the cannonball is determined to be the safest method for disposal.

Installation operations are unaffected and continuing as normal.
