A$AP Rocky’s Swedish Lawyer Shot in Head and Chest



The Swedish lawyer who represented rap star A$AP Rocky was shot and injured on Friday (Sept 6) in Stockholm, police said, adding they had opened an investigation and made one arrest.

Local media said Lilja was sacked on several times outside the apartment block where he lives as he headed out to work and was understood to have been hit in the chest, head and abdomen. Local emergency services responded to the call at 8:59 a.m., and Lilja was then rushed to the hospital. Police are investigating the incident as an "isolated incident" and it's not clear whether he was targeted because of his work. The gunman reportedly jumped inside of a waiting SUV and fled the scene soon after the shooting.

Brazil faces Peru at the Coliseum on Tuesday in a rematch of the Copa America championship game as the global break continues. No one was able to rescue the match, with the two teams combining for just two shots on target and 21 fouls in the first half.

Police in Stockholm have already arrested several people to question about the murder attempt, including a notable female lawyer who previously received a restraining order against contacting Olsson Lilja; though, the shooter was ID'd as male.

Lilja represented A$AP Rocky at the beginning of his assault case in Sweden, before being replaced by another legal team prior to the trial.
