Two women have been rescued after a gunman took them 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 his ex-girlfriend and another woman hostage, law enforcement sources tell NBC New York.

The suspect was shot and apprehended after he barricaded himself in a room with the two woman and negotiated with hostage communicators on the phone.

Both women, who are UPS employees were not seriously injured during the shooting and standoff, Charles Fiore, Gloucester County prosecutor, said in a news conference.

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

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

Armed officers were seen from aerial images crouching behind vehicles, while other officers swarmed an office door. Armored trucks, bomb squad and ambulances were also on the scene.

In a statement, UPS said it was 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.
