The prosecutor's office said the armed suspect in the hostage situation at a UPS plant in New Jersey was hit and the hostage situation was over.
The incident was reported around 9:00 am at the Birchcreek Road facility at Logan Township.
According to the authorities, a man was holding two young women hostage inside the structure. The prosecutor's office says there are no serious injuries to any of them.
All other employees were safely evacuated from the building.
The company's employee, Allen Anthony Dowling, reports to the Associated Press that he heard a colleague say someone had a gun. Dowling says he then heard what he thought was a gunshot and started running along with other employees.
The Gloucester County Attorney, Charles Fiore, says that apparently there was a previous relationship between the hit man and one of the women he took hostage.
Numerous vehicles and police officers were seen outside the sprawling complex, and armed officers were seen squatting behind one of the vehicles.
Schools in the area have been put on a modified block.
The AP thread services have helped to contribute to this relationship.
