Image result for Gunman shoots, wounds US consular official in Mexico

MEXICO CITY -- Mexican police are searching for a gunman who opened fire on an official of the U.S. Consulate in the western city of Guadalajara.
The Attorney General’s Office said on Saturday the official was wounded by a gunshot Friday in Guadalajara -- and the U.S. Consulate said on its Facebook and Twitter pages that the FBI was offering a $20,000 reward for information on the attacker.  
Surveillance video of the attack shows the gunman following the official in a parking garage. The official, whose name was not released, was dressed in shorts.

The attacker doesn’t appear to try to approach the official. Instead, the gunman waits for him to exit the parking garage and fires a round into a car’s windshield.

The U.S. Consulate posted several clips of CCTV video related to the incident on its Facebook page.
