Shots fired near Austrian Embassy in Turkish capital

ISTANBUL (AP) — Turkey's official news agency says shots were fired near the Austrian Embassy in the Turkish capital.

Anadolu news agency says shots were fired into the air from a white car and security forces closed down roads near the embassy in Ankara on Sunday. According to the agency, crime scene investigators found many shell casings.

The private Ihlas news agency says the incident happened around midnight and police are searching for the car. There are no reports of damage or injuries.

It is unclear if the embassy was the target.

In August, three bullets hit the gate and reinforced window outside the United States Embassy in Ankara in a drive-by shooting. No one was injured.
