MONTERREY, Mexico – Soldiers opened fire on a family's car at a checkpoint in northern Mexico, killing a 15-year-old boy and another person, authorities said Monday.

It was at least the second time this year that a family has been caught up in a shooting involving Mexico's military, which has come under intense criticism for human rights abuses as soldiers fight brutal drug cartels.

Soldiers apparently shot at the car when the driver failed to stop at the checkpoint Sunday on the highway from the northeastern city of Monterrey to Laredo, Texas, said Javier Trevina, Nuevo Leon state government secretary.

A 15-year-old boy and a man were killed, he said. Three other adults and two children were wounded.
