Mexican authorities are on the hunt for a gunman who was disguised as a female nurse when he shot and wounded a US consular official in the city of Guadalajara.

The US Federal Bureau of Investigation offered a $20,000 reward for information about the shooter.

The embassy issued a security message later Saturday urging US citizens in Guadalajara to "restrict their movements outside their homes and places of work to those truly essential."
