NEWARK - A pizza deliveryman was shot and killed on the job in Newark Sunday night.

Police responded to a report of a car accident at the corner of South 11th Street and 13th Avenue, at around 9:30 p.m.

Offiers found that the driver, 20-year-old Jesus Torres of Newark, had been shot. He died a short time later.

Investigators say Torres was making a delivery for Pizza Hut when he was killed.

It's the latest murder in a violent week in Newark that has residents concerned.

"Newark is on fire, man. It's bad, it's very bad here," says local activist Earl Best. "We've got to come together as a whole. We're so divided in this city, man."

Police have not announced any arrests in the case and say the investigation into Torres' murder is continuing.
