MEXICO CITY — The U.S. State Department was urging its employees Tuesday to keep their children home from a school popular with Americans after a shootout nearby in the northern city of Monterrey, the latest in a wave of violence.

The shootout near the American School Foundation of Monterrey resulted in the deaths of two security guards at the nearby offices of a Mexican bottling company. Four other security guards were kidnapped in the shootout by what police said were drug smugglers. They were later released.
