Mexican authorities said the victim, who has not yet been officially identified, is in a stable condition. The city is the capital of Jalisco state, which is dominated by the hyper-violent Jalisco New Generation cartel. A consulate spokesperson spoke to The Guardian and said that they are working with Mexican law enforcement in this matter.
Guadalajara, Mexico's second largest city, is located in the western Jalisco state. The US consulate has not commented or given any information on the victim's identity.
