ANKARA, Aug. 20 (Xinhua) -- Nobody was reported injured or killed as an unknown gunman fired several shots Monday morning at the U.S. embassy here, according to local media reports.

Four to six shots were heard by security guards in front of the embassy's Gate 6 at 5 a.m. local time (0200 GMT) as the suspect drove a white car passing by.

While no casualties were reported, police are searching for the hit-and-run driver, who escaped before the car's license plate number could be seen.
