2 female victims unharmed after UPS hostage situation

LOGAN TOWNSHIP, N.J. — Prosecutors say an armed man burst into a UPS facility in New Jersey and took two female workers hostage before officers stormed in and resolved the ordeal.

Gloucester County Prosecutor Charles Fiore says the suspect was apparently shot and injured, but the women were unharmed in the situation Monday at the supply chain processing facility in Logan Township, about 20 miles south of Philadelphia.

Employee Allen Anthony Dowling said he heard a fellow worker say someone had a gun. Dowling says he then heard what he thought was a gunshot and began to run along with other employees.

Fiore says there was apparently a previous relationship between the gunman and one of the women he took hostage.

Police swarmed the area in the morning and evacuated employees.
