An attorney for the Philippines government was fatally shot in Philadelphia this weekend while in an Uber on the way to the airport, as investigators still haven’t disclosed a motive as of Monday morning. 

John Albert Laylo, an attorney for the government of the Philippines, and his mother were headed to Philadelphia International Airport to board a flight early Saturday when police say an unidentified suspect in a black car fired several rounds around 4:10 a.m. into their Uber at a red light near the University of Pennsylvania. 

Laylo was shot in the back of the head and taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead Sunday morning, police said. No arrests have been announced as of early Monday. 

“Too many guns. Doesn’t matter if it’s a tourist from the Philippines or one of our native-born Philadelphians, there are too many damn guns in Pennsylvania and Philadelphia,” Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney, a Democrat, said Sunday, according to WPVI-TV.

State Farm ‘Creepy Neighbor’ saga: New campaign asks why insurance giant pushed LGBTQ+ books on children

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

FIRST ON FOX — State Farm quickly ditched a controversial partnership that pushed books about gender fluidity on young children last month after Consumers’ Research launched the “Like a Creepy Neighbor” campaign, but low internal morale, angry agents and a follow-up campaign loom over the company’s 100-year anniversary celebration. 

Consumers’ Research launched the next phase of its campaign against State Farm on Monday, with a new website AskStateFarmWhy.com. The site allows  people to sign a petition demanding State Farm enlist a third party to audit all programs targeting children, determine every school, public library, and community center where the books were donated, publish the findings and notify parents in the areas where books were made available to children. 

“The name of this campaign is ‘Ask State Farm Why?’ And it’s set to coincide with the 100-year anniversary of the founding of that company and their celebrations of that anniversary in Las Vegas. We want to remind State Farm agents, and especially State Farm executives like the CEO, that they still have work to do to clean up the damage that they did to America’s children,” Consumers’ Research executive director Will Hild
