Mexico Repatriates Suspect in Attacking US Consulate Official


In an interview from a hospital, where he remains in good condition, Ashcraft told Federal Bureau of Investigation agents that when he left a nearby gym that evening he sensed that a person was waiting for him, according to court documents. The safety and security of USA citizens and our diplomatic staff overseas are among our highest priorities.

The U.S. man arrested by Mexican authorities in connection with last week's shooting of a diplomat stationed at the U.S. Consulate in Guadalajara made his initial appearance Tuesday after being charged with the attempted murder. He has a California driver's license, and a Honda Civic with California plates.

According to the consulate's Facebook page, a man they identify as the official is shown paying a parking ticket at an automated machine and the suspected gunman is seen following him. Ashcroft remains in a Guadalajara hospital, the Justice Department said Tuesday.

The U.S. embassy has not identified the official, who was shot in his auto Friday in Guadalajara.

More than 200 of the girls remain missing, though several have reportedly died from things such as malaria and snake bites. The Nigerian military has said another of the 276 schoolgirls abducted in 2014 by Boko Haram militants has been freed.

"On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I want to thank the government of Mexico for their swift and decisive arrest of a suspect in the heinous attack against our Foreign Service Officer colleague in Guadalajara, Mexico", Secretary of State John Kerry said Sunday.

The U.S. Embassy in Mexico City urged citizens to limit their movements in the Guadalajara area.

"Zafar disguised himself and followed the Vice Consul of the US consulate in Guadalajara through a parking garage to his vehicle", the release said. "They should vary the times and routes of their movements".

The criminal complaint of the event explains that Zafar disguised himself and followed Vice Consul Christopher Ashcraft after the diplomat left the gym to his vehicle in a parking garage.
