FBI seeks suspect after US consular official shot in Mexico
A US consular official was shot in Guadalajara, Mexico, on Friday night, prompting the FBI to offer a $20,000 reward for information that leads to identifying the suspect.
On Saturday morning, Mexico’s federal attorney general’s office said in a statement that it was working with the US embassy “to find those responsible for this unfortunate event”. It added that state and federal authorities had been assigned to protect the victim, who is in a stable condition.
CCTV footage released by the consulate showed a well-built, light-skinned man in gym clothes paying at a machine for a parking ticket at 6.16pm. He was immediately followed by a man in a purple T-shirt.
A consulate spokesperson told the Guardian: “We are working closely with Mexican law enforcement in this matter. The FBI is offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to the identification of the shooter. Due to privacy considerations we have no additional information to share at this time.”
Guadalajara’s El Informador newspaper reported that the victim, not named in the report or by the consulate, was being treated at a local hospital for a gunshot wound in the upper chest.
