U.S. Embassy Staffer GUNNED-DOWN 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.

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.

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.

The US consulate posted video on Facebook following the shooting.

A second video shows the man in purple loitering by the car park exit before pulling out a pistol, firing once and running away.

“The FBI offers a reward of $20,000 for information that leads to the identification of the subject who shot a United States consular official today in Guadalajara,” the consulate said in a statement.

“Please call the United States Embassy in Mexico City if you recognise him at (01-55)5080-2000.”

The US State Department has issued a travel warning to Americans for Jalisco, the western state where Guadalajara, Mexico’s second largest city, is located. Citing “continued instability”, the department prohibits government officials from “intercity travel after hours” and from using certain highways or stopping in specific towns.
