GALVESTON — The old Galveston County Jail will become an urban warfare training ground tonight.

The U.S. Army will use the facility to conduct night training, so residents of the island’s East End and Texas City might see military personnel and possibly a helicopter landing on the roof. They might hear gunfire and explosions, too.
