PHOENIX -- The Department of Defense says a sailor from Arizona has died after being wounded while serving in Afghanistan.

Pentagon officials announced Thursday that 31-year-old Chief Petty Officer Christian Michael Pike died Wednesday in Landstuhl, Germany.

They say the Peoria resident died as a result of combat-related injuries sustained March 10 while conducting stability operations in Maiwand District, Afghanistan.

Pike was assigned to a West Coast-based Naval Special Warfare unit.
