PATERSON, N.J. (AP) — Authorities say a food delivery driver was shot to death while making a delivery in New Jersey.

Passaic County prosecutors and Paterson police say 43-year-old Petra Rhoden was found in her crashed car with an apparent gunshot wound at about 10:20 p.m. Friday. She died shortly afterward at St. Joseph's University Medical Center.

Authorities say Rhoden had just made a DoorDash food delivery at an address when she was shot. They say she tried to drive off but crashed a short distance away, her vehicle going through a fence and striking a shed.

Her brother, Rick Rhoden, told NJ Advance Media that his sister also worked in the music industry. He called her "just a nice person. Giving, loving and caring." Anyone with information is asked to call investigators.
