Mexican Soldiers Shoot at U.S. Marine’s Car

A Mexican official says soldiers shot at the car of a U.S. Marine for allegedly speeding through a military checkpoint outside the beach town of Playas de Rosarito.

Police Chief Jorge Eduardo Montero says the gunfire shattered Pfc. Joshua Kendall Monnet's side window around 4 a.m. Tuesday and sent a small piece of glass into his eye. He was being treated at a Tijuana hospital, where U.S. consular officials interviewed him.

U.S. military officials say the Marine is assigned to Camp Pendleton, north of San Diego, California. Playas de Rosarito is about 12 miles south of the California border.
