Shots Fired at Vehicle Carrying US Official in Guatemala, No Injuries
TEHRAN (Tasnim) - Shots were fired at a vehicle carrying a US embassy official in southern Guatemala on Sunday evening but there were no injuries, a spokesman for the Central American country's national police said.
A spokesman for the embassy confirmed the incident and said US officials were working with police to investigate.
"It seems the incident did not have a political motivation, nor was it directed at the embassy," he said, Reuters reported.
Shots were fired by a group of residents, who were pursuing those responsible for a crime in the southern city of San Vicente Pacaya, as the vehicle was passing through the area, police said.
Police said they helped the diplomat return home after the incident.
