KILLEEN, Texas (AP) — Officials say a soldier has been killed while participating in medical helicopter evacuation training at a U.S. Army post in Texas.

An Army statement identified the soldier as Staff Sgt. Sean Devoy.

Fort Hood officials say the aircraft crew was doing hoist training when the 28-year-old soldier was killed Tuesday night on a range south of an airfield at the post in Killeen.

Officials say the HH-60M aircraft and crew were from the 1st Infantry Division at Fort Riley in Kansas.
