CAMDEN COUNTY, N.J. -- A suspect under arrest was shot and killed inside a police station in New Jersey early Friday after he obtained a weapon and opened fire on three officers, injuring one seriously, according to police officials.

The gunfire erupted at the Gloucester Township police headquarters around 5:30 a.m. ET, according to Deputy Chief David Harkins, the (Cherry Hill, N.J.) Courier-Post reported.

He said the unidentified suspect got his hands on a firearm and shot at the three officers.

"The officers returned fire and the suspect is deceased at this time inside the police station," he said.

One officer was hit and is in stable condition.

WPVI-TV reported that two other officers were treated for bullet-graze wounds."Everybody was running up the side here," Sharon Lehner, a nurse who lives next door to the station told the Courier-Post. "I saw a paramedic unit and an ambulance come down. I saw a lot of quick action in the ambulance with officers getting into the ambulance and then leaving."
