A hostage situation at a UPS facility in Logan Township, New Jersey has ended. Law enforcement shot the suspected man, who reportedly did not surrender. He is being taken to the hopsital.

The two hostages, both female UPS employees, did not suffer serious injuries.

An active shooter was reported around 8:30 a.m. Monday at 200 Birch Creek Road, where UPS has a mailing facility. Authorities said it was not an active shooter, but rather “two young ladies” were taken hostage by the man.

“It’s an active crime scene that’s still currently going on,” Charles Fiore, the prosecutor of Gloucester County, where Logan Township is located, said at a media conference around 11:45 a.m. “The barricaded situation has not been resolved.”

Shortly after noon, Fiore reported that the situation has ended after law enforcement shot and apprehended the suspect.

A law enforcement source told NBC New York that one of the women who was taken into hostage is the ex-girlfriend of the man. Fiore could not confirm or deny that information, nor could a Logan Township police representative who Business Insider contacted.

Fiore said he did not know whether the suspected man fired any shots.

All other employees have been evacuated, Fiore said. Fiore could not say whether the man who took the women hostage is also an employee.

“UPS is working with law enforcement as they respond to an active shooter situation at one of the company’s supply chain processing facilities in Logan Township, New Jersey,” UPS told Business Insider in a statement when the hostage situation was first reported as a shooting this morning. “We cannot provide information about the identity of people involved at this time.”

Logan Township is situated about 24 miles southwest of Philadelphia.

ABC 6 Action News reported that multiple police vehicles and officers were outside the UPS facility this morning, and officers “could be seen ducking behind police vehicles outside a loading ramp.” Emergency vehicles and bomb squad vehicles were also seen.

“I noticed people running out the back exit and I asked a coworker ‘why is everyone running outside?’ Next thing you know I hear a gunshot and a coworker screaming ‘Everybody get out he’s got a gun,'” UPS employee Donelle Harden told ABC 6.
