An airman who grew up in the Chicago suburbs has been killed in Afghanistan.

The U.S. Department of Defense says Captain Brandon Cyr died Saturday in an aircraft crash near Kandahar airfield.

The 28-year old was born in Colorado, but his family says he grew up in Oswego.

Military officials say three other airmen were also killed in the crash.
