Active shooter situation at UPS facility in New Jersey

Police respond to reports of an active shooter at a New Jersey UPS

Law enforcement officers were at the scene in Gloucester County early Monday, according to the Logan Township Police Department.

Police have surrounded the loading dock area of a UPS facility in New Jersey in response to a reported active shooter. "We can not provide information about the identity of people involved at this time", the company said in a statement.

SWAT teams have been seen outside the facility, with a UPS spokesman tweeting: 'We are working with law enforcement as they respond and can not provide information about the identity of people involved at this time'.

In a tweet just before 10 a.m. ET, the New Jersey State Police said local police were responding to an incident in Logan Township.


Several roads in the surrounding area are closed off due to active police presence.

A spokesman for the Gloucester County Prosecutor's Office told NJ.com "the situation is contained".

Nearby schools have been put on lockdown while cops investigate the potential threat. All students and staff are safe, the district said.

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