A$AP Rocky’s first lawyer from his case in Sweden has been shot in Stockholm, according to reports. Swedish lawyer Henrik Olssen Lilja was reportedly shot in the and chest on Friday morning (6 September) in the capital, and called the police himself for assistance.
According to Forbes, police are investigating the matter as an isolated incident and ‘several people’ have been arrested for questioning.
In a statement on The Swedish Police Authority website, police said: ‘The police have arrested several people for questioning. The investigation is at an intense stage and the police are working on several different fronts to make progress.’
A spokesperson from the Prosecutor’s Office has also confirmed to Expressen a female lawyer was among those arrested. Eyewitnesses have claimed Henrik was involved in a physical altercation in the stairwell of his workplace before gunshots were fired.
Henrik was conscious when police were contacted, but his current condition is unknown. The lawyer represented A$AP Rocky after he was first taken into custody in Sweden in July over assault, and was later replaced as the rapper’s lawyer before the trial. A$AP Rocky was found guilty of assault last month over the incident, and was given a suspended sentence.
