The FBI has issued a $20,000 reward for information leading to the person who shot a United States consular official in Guadalajara, Mexico Friday night.

The victim, who has not been named by either federal authorities or the consulate, was taken to a local hospital for treatment to a gunshot wound to his upper chest, The Guardian, quoting Guadalajara's El Informador newspaper, reported Saturday.

Video footage released by the consulate shows a "well-built, light-skinned man in gym clothes paying at a machine for a [car lot] parking ticket at 6:16 p.m." He was followed by a man wearing a purple T-shirt, who was hanging out near the car park's exit, who eventually pulled out a gun, fired once, and then ran away.

The FBI has asked anyone with information to contact the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City at (01-55)5080-2000.

The State Department has also issued a travel warning to Americans for the Mexican state of Jalisco, the state where Guadalajara is located.

The department already prohibits government officials from traveling between cities or using certain highways.
