Reports of active shooter at New Jersey UPS facility

Reports of active shooter at New Jersey UPS facility

Police officers responded to an active shooter situation at a UPS facility in South Jersey after receiving reports of shots being fired.

Police first received calls at about 8:45 a.m. for an incident at UPS Mail Innovations facility, located on the 200th block of Birch Creek Road, Logan Township police said.

Police were seen ducking behind vehicles outside a loading ramp at the sprawling complex. From the footage, it appears at least 20 members of law enforcement were on the scene.

In a statement, UPS says it's working with law enforcement on an active shooter situation, but did not provide details or identify if any employees were involved.

A spokesman for the Gloucester County Prosecutor's Office told "the situation is contained". "We can not provide information about the identity of people involved at this time", the company said in a statement to Fox News. Gilbert said law enforcement was now in "fact-gathering" mode.

A gunman has taken his ex-girlfriend and another person hostage at a New Jersey UPS facility Monday morning.

The Logan Township School District has placed all schools on lockdown following police reports as a precaution.

This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
