Mexican police hunted on Saturday for a gunman who shot and wounded a US consulate official who was driving out of a parking garage in the western city of Guadalajara.
The FBI offered a $20,000 reward for information about the shooter.
“An official from the US consulate was wounded by a shot from a firearm. … According to the medical report, he is in stable condition,” the Mexican attorney general’s office said in a statement.
The statement said Mexican authorities are in contact with the US embassy and consulate in efforts to locate the shooter.
