Lilja reportedly called the police himself after being shot in the head and chest.
Henrik Olsson Lilja, the Swedish lawyer who represented A$AP Rocky during his controversial trial this summer, was shot in Stockholm Friday morning (Sept. 6).
According to a report in Forbes, Lilja was shot in the head and chest and reportedly called the police himself. At press time, his current status remains unknown. It is not known whether he was targeted because of his work. Authorities are reportedly treating the case as an isolated incident.
According to a report in Expressen reported, police have arrested a woman, reportedly also a senior lawyer, who had previously been banned from contacting Lilja.
“The police have arrested several people for questioning,” the Swedish Police Authority wrote on their official site. “The investigation is at an intense stage and the police are working on several different fronts to make progress.”
