ASAP Rocky’s Former Swedish Lawyer Shot in Head and Chest: Report
The man who first represented A$AP Rocky in his Sweden assault case has reportedly just been shot.
According to TMZ, Henrik Olsson Lilja, who initially represented Rocky in July before the rapper's assault trial began, was shot in the head and chest as he was leaving his Stockholm, Sweden apartment on Friday morning (Sept. 6). The gunman reportedly jumped inside of a waiting SUV and fled the scene soon after the shooting.
Despite his gunshot wounds, Olsson Lilja was able to call the police. It is unknown if the shooting was related to his representation of Rocky, who was convicted for an assault on a 19-year-old man last month.
Olsson Lilja was replaced by Rocky's other attorneys by the time the rapper's trial started in August. He is the attorney that disputed claims that Rocky was living in inhumane conditions while jailed in Sweden.
