A woman has been arrested after two people shot at the US consulate in Istanbul.
Security guards outside the embassy returned fire and the attackers fled, reports Turkish CNN.
According to the news agency Cihan, a man and a woman were involved in the attack on the building located in the district of Sariyer.
The suspected woman is now detained, reports the broadcaster NTV.
There are no reports of deaths or injuries following the incident, according to Reuters.
The shooting incident took place a few hours after a bomb attack against a police station in Istanbul, where three people were killed and at least ten wounded.
The bomb also caused a fire which led to a three-story building collapsed.
No one has claimed responsibility for the bomb, but Turkish security forces last month began an offensive against the Kurdish PKK guerrillas, that has cost hundreds of lives.
Saturday night a Turkish policeman was killed in a PKK attack in southeast Turkey.
Turkey has also stepped up the fight against the rebels of the Islamic state (IS) and last month completed airstrikes against IS positions in Syria. At least so they claim.
