Updated at 4 p.m. ET: The commanding officer of SEAL Team 4 died in Afghanistan Saturday, U.S. military officials announced Sunday.
Military officials tell NBC News they are looking into the death of Cmdr. Job W. Price as a possible suicide, but that his death remains under investigation.
Price, 42, of Pottstown, Pa., was in charge of coordinating all Team 4 missions.
Price was in Afghanistan supporting stability operations in Uruzgan Province. He was assigned to an East Coast-based Naval Special Warfare unit based in Virginia Beach, Va.
According to his LinkedIn profile, Price had worked for the Department of Defense since 1989. He attended Pottstown Senior High School.

A U.S. official has identified to Fox News the member of the Navy SEAL Team Six — the same special ops group used for the raid on Usama bin Laden’s compound — that was killed during a weekend rescue mission in Afghanistan that freed an American doctor abducted by the Taliban outside of Kabul five days ago.
Petty Officer 1st Class Nicolas D. Checque, 28, of Monroeville, Pa., died of combat related injuries suffered Dec. 8, while supporting operations near Kabul, Afghanistan. Checque was stationed in Virginia Beach where he was assigned to a Naval Special Warfare unit.
President Barack Obama praised the special forces on Sunday, saying the mission was characteristic of U.S. troops’ “extraordinary courage, skill and patriotism.”
A spokesman for U.S. forces in Afghanistan said Dr. Dilip Joseph of Colorado Springs, Colo., was rescued early Sunday, local time, in eastern Afghanistan. Joseph, a medical adviser for Colorado Springs-based Morning Star Development, was rescued after intelligence showed he was in imminent danger of injury or possible death, according to the U.S. military.
