WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP (Gloucester) — The woman police say shot her ex-boyfriend at the bus garage where he worked has been identified as a corrections officer, according to the Gloucester County Prosecutor's Office.

Authorities say Piacenta M. Jackson shot Ryon C. Reynolds, a bus driver with NJ Transit, with a gun that investigators said she personally owned.

After the shooting, the prosecutor's office has said, Jackson's car was seen by officers from both Deptford and Mantua police departments who attempted a traffic stop. Instead, Jackson pulled into a parking lot, exited the car, and shot herself, according to the prosecutor's office.

An autopsy conducted determined Reynolds' cause of death to be a gunshot wound to the back. The prosecutor's office said interviews with witnesses determined Jackson and Reynolds had been dating but that the relationship ended prior to the shooting.

State pension records list Jackson's last place of employment as Southern State Correctional Facility. She is listed as having more than 13 years of service.

Following the shooting, the garage was closed but buses continued to use the facility.
