Washington Township Police and Gloucester County SWAT responded to the scene, which was evacuated. Buses arriving at the depot were rerouted for a time. The delays reportedly stalled eight different bus lines while law enforcement attempted to resolve the matter.

After a short negotiation with police, Tripp was taken into custody. He was reportedly transported to a nearby hospital to be treated for minor injuries.

Gregory Tripp now faces multiple charges including aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

There was no update regarding the motel neighbor who was reportedly pistol-whipped by Tripp at the Primrose Motel. We'll keep you posted if any more details surface regarding this incident.
