"At 8:34 a.m. local time, small arms fire was reported near the entrance to the US Embassy. Thanks to the quick response of the LAF, ISF and our embassy security team, our facility and our team are safe," the US Embassy in Beirut confirmed in a statement.

A member of the US Embassy's security was wounded in the attack.

The embassy announced that the investigation is ongoing and that they are in close contact with Lebanese officials.

"Members of the military deployed in the area responded to the sources of fire and wounded the shooter. He was arrested and taken to the hospital for treatment," the military statement said.

Local media reported that the shooting lasted for almost half an hour. Roads leading to the embassy from Dbayeh and Awkar were closed following the incident, Lebanon's state-run National News Agency (NNA) reported.

The individual shot at the embassy guard, and the Lebanese armed forces returned fire and shot the assailant, a diplomatic source told the paper.

The attacker was taken alive and arrested on the spot, the source added.
