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

The man reportedly entered the UPS Mail Innovations warehouse around 8.30am Monday and fired shots into the ceiling before taking the two women hostage, law enforcement sources tell NBC New York.

The source says no one was struck in the initial shooting and there is no information on the gunman’s relationship to UPS.

Police evacuated the building and have surrounded the loading dock area of the large UPS supply chain warehouse in Logan Township, about 20 miles south of Philadelphia.

Gloucester County officials say 32 employees were inside the facility on Birchcreek Road at the time of the shooting.

Armed officers can be seen from aerial images crouching behind vehicles, while other officers were seen swarming an office door. Armored trucks, bomb squad and ambulances have arrived on the scene.

There have been no reported injuries.

In a statement, UPS says it’s working with law enforcement on an active shooter situation at its supply chain processing facility in Logan Township, but did not provide details or identify if any employees were involved.

‘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. We cannot provide information about the identity of people involved at this time,’ UPS said in a statement.
