A$AP Rocky’s Swedish lawyer shot multiple times in apparent ambush

Swedish lawyer Henrik Olsson Lilja, who served as U.S. rapper A$AP Rocky’s lawyer in his assault case, was reportedly shot multiple times on Friday outside his apartment building.

Olsson Lilja was shot in the head and chest, the Swedish newspaper Expressen reported.

He was still responsive after the shooting and called the police himself, after which he was transported by ambulance to the hospital, but his current condition is unknown.

{mosads}The paper reported that the shooter was a man who fled in a waiting black SUV and remains at large.

“The police have arrested several people for questioning. The investigation is at an intense stage and the police are working on several different fronts to make progress,” the Swedish Police Authority said in a statement.

Expressen reported that police have arrested a woman, allegedly also a lawyer, who had been banned from contacting Olsson Lilja. 

Olsson Lilja was A$AP Rocky’s lawyer for an assault trial over his participation in a street fight after he was arrested in July. 

The rapper was found guilty last month after drawing the interest of President Trump who repeatedly advocated for his release.

A$AP Rocky returned to the United States in August.
