An armed man accused of holding two women hostage inside a UPS warehouse Monday morning in Gloucester County is now in custody.

According to authorities, police responded to the UPS facility - located on Birchcreek Road - sometime around 8:30 a.m. for a potential active shooter situation.

Gloucester County Prosecutor Charles Fiore says when authorities arrived, they found the man barricaded inside with two - UPS employees - being held hostage.

Shots were fired by the suspect but it was not clear where the shots were fired, Foote added.

According to officials, police took the building by force after the more than three-hour standoff.

The gunman has since been transported to an area hospital in unknown condition.

Authorities have confirmed that the building has since been evacuated and 32 UPS warehouse employees have been relocated to the nearby Holiday Inn.

The gunman’s motive has yet to be determined as officials continue to investigate.
