One U.S. service member died and two were injured on Tuesday during an attack near Marjah in Helmand Province, Afghanistan.
The military said it could not release any more information until next of kin were notified.
News reports said that the casualty and injuries were the result of two attacks. A group of special operators was attacked during a mission, NBC News reported. Then, a helicopter arriving at the site of that attack for medical evacuation came under fire. It was unclear if the medevac helicopter was damaged.
