A US Navy SEAL commander died after apparently committing suicide in the southern Uruzgan province, US military officials said on Sunday.
Navy SEAL Commander Job W. Price, 42, of Pottstown, Pa., died Saturday of a non-combat-related injury while supporting stability operations in southern Uruzgan Province.
The death "appears to be the result of suicide," a Defense Department statement said.
"The Naval Special Warfare family is deeply saddened by the loss of our teammate," said Capt. Robert Smith, Commander of Naval Special Warfare Group Two, which manages all Virginia-based Navy SEAL teams.
FOX News reports that a US military official confirmed Price was from Virginia Beach, Va.-based SEAL Team 4, which is part of the mission to train Afghan local police.
Price is survived by a wife and a daughter.
