Police in the state of Pennsylvania are reportedly investigating an incident at the mansion of Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO)’s leader in Saylosburg.

A farmer told Anadolu Agency the probe was regards to “an armed man.”

Several police vehicles rushed to the mansion and a police helicopter was hovering, said the farmer who requested anonymity.

Local reporters posted photographs on social media showing the front of the mansion with police vehicles and a helicopter in the area.

Brianna Strunk, a local journalist, said in a tweet Pennsylvania police confirmed they are “investigating an incident” at the compound.

Nocel Walters, from BRC News13, said “neighbors were told to stay inside and tell us they’re searching for a man dressed in black carrying a gun”.

The Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO) and its U.S.-based leader, Fetullah Gulen, allegedly orchestrated a defeated coup, which martyred 251 people and injured nearly 2,200 others in July 2016.

Gulen has lived in self-imposed exile in Pennsylvania since 1999.
