A woman who was delivering food to a loft in Deep Ellum was shot, and there's now a GoFundme set up to help with her expenses.

According to the police report, on October 27 at about 10 pm, officers responding to the shooting of Amy Weaver, 40, whom they found near her car with a gunshot wound to her left leg.

Weaver, who delivers food for GrubHub, had just made a delivery to Continental Lofts and was walking back to her car when she was approached by two Latin males, whom she estimated to be 16-17 years old.

They demanded her phone, but she froze in fear, and one shot her in the leg. They then fled in a vehicle driven by a Latin female - without any of the victim's property.

A security guard and residents from the loft building found Weaver and called the police.

Weaver had surgery on October 28 for a shattered femur. Once she's released from the hospital, she'll go to rehab where she'll need to stay for a few weeks.

GrubHub released a statement saying, "We are aware of the incident involving one of our delivery drivers in the Dallas area. The safety of our delivery partners is incredibly important and something we take very seriously. We are in touch with the driver as well as the local police department to assist in any investigation."

But meanwhile, Lesli Stewart, a relative, has set up a GoFundme to help with expenses since the GrubHub job was her only source of income and she has no insurance. Make donations here.
