MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO/AP) — A military policeman from Rosemount has died in an attack in Afghanistan.

The Department of Defense says Spc. Andrew C. Wilfahrt died Sunday when insurgents attacked his unit in Kandahar province using a homemade bomb.

The 31-year-old Wilfahrt was assigned to a military police battalion based in Hawaii.

He enlisted in the Army in January 2009 and has been assigned to the 728th Military Police Battalion since July 2009.

He deployed to Afghanistan in July 2010.
