BEVERLY, New Jersey (WPVI) -- Officials in Burlington County say a fatal shooting early Tuesday morning led to an hours-long standoff and a nearby school to be closed for the day.
One suspect was taking into custody following this incident, officials say.
The shooting, which was reported to police at approximately 1:15 a.m., caused a standoff with law enforcement officers that lasted several hours.
A woman and four children were reportedly released unharmed.
SWAT units were called to Bentley Avenue and Cherry Street in Beverly around 6:30 a.m.
Video from Chopper 6 over the scene showed at least two SWAT vehicles outside a home on the block.
Roads in the area were shut down as the standoff continued.
Just before 9 a.m., the Action Cam recorded an officer holding a child walking from the scene.
Moments later, a man surrendered and was taken into custody.
Multiple law enforcement agencies assisted.
"When I woke up, I looked out my bedroom window and saw the SWAT trucks right here on the street like what's going on? It's very surprising to see it. It's scary," neighbor Dawn Forvour.
The scene took place across the street from the Beverly City School, which makes up the Beverly City School District.
Due to the police activity, officials announced the school would be closed for the day.
