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.

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.

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

  2. Amateur. Probably got killed right after by his bosses for dropping the ball like that. Makes you wonder why they wanted him dead. Reminds me on the attack in Juarez in wich they were giving out visas to CDS.

    1. 1:59 In essence you are saying Quintero is a dumb fuck that is incapable of learning . Sure he still has some $$$ and power but ..... Don't you think he learned something from his past mistakes . He don't have to be intelligent , which I don't believe he is . A monkey hits himself on the finger with a hammer he walks away wiser . Why don't you give Quintero that much credit ?

  6. Chivis or who ever is in charge the ADUANA border agents and federal government are on strike. Mexican officials are not inspecting cars at the San ysidro crossing and there is not one agent onsite. People are walking around drinking laughing standing on the posts. Let's us know more if you find out

  9. Not a good time to extradite Guzman? Unacceptable

  10. The guy shoot was a dea agent.

  11. Definitely a personal issue not a political statement. If cartel involvement was at hand more gunmen would have been on site. Maybe a marital affair? Something personal.
    It would be suicide to get in war with American servicemen or any American diplomat. Cartels will not win . Look àt the disarray of terrorists groups who went against America. The Taliban and other extremists groups are getting there button kicked really good. Mexican Cartels don't want drones on there Ass. Moreover American soldiers in there country hunting them.
    Any fool can see its suicidal.

  16. World news tonight showed suspect stalking the attendent victim . Definitely sloppy not the work of An assassin . Video footage shows the assailant within feet of striking distance. Instead he took the most unprofessional time to do what he did. It's personal. Cartels know better not to open a can of kick ass with American government officials.

    He's Hindu.

    He's in custody.
