The US State Department is warning American citizens to avoid the country’s embassy in Turkey amid reports of a shooting in the area.

Early Tuesday morning local time, a man armed with a shotgun reportedly tried to enter the US Embassy in Ankara, where a shootout with police occurred. The suspect was taken into custody. The gunman has thus far only been named as "Sahin S." in the Turkish state press.

An ongoing police presence in the area initially left the consulate requesting that US citizens stay clear until the following morning, but later the US Embassy tweeted that it would close for the day and reschedule visa appointments.
