A woman working for the app DoorDash was fatally shot while making a delivery in New Jersey on Friday night, authorities said.
Petra Rhoden, 43, was found in her car with a gunshot wound after crashing through a fence and striking a shed about 10:20 p.m. in Paterson, according to the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office.
Authorities said Rhoden had just completed a delivery for the service; which uses drivers to pick up and drop off food for users of the app.
Rhoden, of Paterson, was declared dead at St. Joseph’s University Medical Center.
The victim’s brother, Rick Rhoden, told NJ.com that his sister worked in the music industry, which was her life passion.
“She was just a nice person. Giving, loving and caring,” Rhoden told the site. “She would do anything for anybody.”
The investigation into Rhoden’s death is ongoing.
