The Bell County Public Health District issued a health alert for The Gun Range in Killeen on Wednesday.

According to the Bell County Public Health District, they have been notified by representatives of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) that an inspection at The Gun Range, located at 2401 S. Fort Hood Street, has identified lead levels within the building.

Potential customers should be aware that sampling during the inspection identified lead on surfaces in the areas of the facility frequented by customers as well as airborne lead levels behind the firing lines that exceeded permissible exposure limits to workers.

The Bell County Public Health District said this is not considered an environmental or public health issue as the lead is contained within the building and those in the surrounding areas are considered safe.

The OSHA inspection is in progress, the Health District does not have any further information or additional detail.
