An employee at a UPS facility that is the scene of a reported active shooter situation in New Jersey says he heard an apparent gunshot and began to run.

PIX11 has reached out to Logan Township Police Department, who would only confirm there is "active police activity".

Authorities responded to a report of an active shooter at the UPS facility in Logan Township around 8:30 a.m.as the SWAT team was activated to head to the warehouse on the 200 block of Birch Creek Road.

Armed officers can be seen crouching behind one of the vehicles.

A spokesman for the Gloucester County Prosecutor's Office told NJ.com "the situation is contained". Gilbert said law enforcement was now in "fact-gathering" mode.

The building, located in a commercial district of the south New Jersey township of 6,000, is a supply chain processing facility, UPS said.

A modified lockdown, meaning no one can enter or leave the building, was ordered at three Logan Township schools following the reported active shooter.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
