    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.


    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.

    If this turned out be connected to A$AP case/ politically motivated/hate crime etc, MAGA White House and civil rigts leaders might need to get involved again to make sure Sweden will deliver justice.


    MAGA , FLOTUS, Kim Kardashian, Rev Sharpton had showed strong leadership on this earlier and pressured Sweden to make sure Sweden did the right thing.

    Reportedly, the person hiring the shooter was a judge.

    https://www.aftenposten.no/verden/i/...tt-i-Stockholm (Google Translation- gives "hitman" as "renter")

    A man was seen running from the scene, and police are investigating the incident as a murder attempt. Before he was placed on the operating table, Olsson Lilja must have indicated to the police that there may have been talk of a renter.

    The lawyer must also have suggested that a person in his presence, who has been contacted for periods of time, may be behind.

    A woman has been arrested, suspected of hiring a renter.

    Judge arrested

    According to Expressen, the woman arrested in the case is an experienced judge and top lawyer, who previously had very good references. However, something must have happened, because after a while she repeatedly came into conflict with the law and was herself convicted of mistreatment and violence against police officers.

    She must have been in conflict for a long time with Olsson Lilja, who felt so threatened by her that he went to the police and demanded contact bans.

    According to the newspaper, the female lawyer was arrested when she arrived at the scene after just over an hour. The police had then searched for her in the meantime, allegedly following tips from Olsson Lilja.

    v this still applies:

    That said, let's wait till better translation becomes available and all the facts come out before jumping to any conclusions.
    This might not be a hate crime but in the past A$AP arrest in Sweden had reportedly evoked emotional, polarized responses.

    A "cleaner" translated piece: https://www.bt.dk/udland/medie-asap-...kudt-i-hovedet

    A woman has been arrested. The Expressen writes that it is a person who has had a police case against contacting the lawyer.

    The man, who is in his 50s, was shot at Kungsholmen in Stockholm.

    "We have a person who was injured by gunshots," said Anna Westberg, police spokeswoman.

    According to the Express, a man has been identified as a shooter, while the woman was later arrested and questioned. The newspaper states that she has previously been a high ranking lawyer.

    Police describe the shooting as an isolated incident. It sees no connection to criminal groups, violent crimes or organized crime.

    Police are reluctant to disclose further details of the shooting, which according to Expressen's witnesses happened in a stairwell.

    According to the newspaper, a witness saw the lawyer and another man in a quarrel immediately before the shooting. The lawyer was taken to the hospital by ambulance.

    His condition is described as severe but stable.

    https://www.wprost.pl/kultura/102485...strzelony.html

    In a conversation with journalists from the Forbes portal, information that Henrik Olsson Lilja was injured during the shootout was confirmed by a spokeswoman for the Swedish Bar Association. The services were called at 8:59. Lilja was to be shot in the head and chest.

    The police do not inform about the possible motives of the attack, nor does it link it to the Rocky A $ AP case. It is not known if the attack was related to a lawyer's job. According to the witnesses of the incident, the man was pushing with someone on the staircase in central Stockholm, after which shots were fired. Lilja was supposed to borrow a phone call from her neighbor to call the place of service, so everything indicates that he was conscious at the time. Local media reports that its current status is unknown.

    According to "Expressen" , a woman was arrested in connection with the case, who - according to unofficial information - is also a lawyer and was forbidden to approach Lilja. The shot was to be made by an unidentified man who later drove away from the scene with a black SUV and is still being chased by the police.

    Fake news.

    It is illegal for a civilian in Sweden to carry a firearm, unless for a specific, legal purpose;such as hunting or attending shooting ranges.

    What is going on in Sweden.. lately quite a few such headlines out of there.



    With current diversity situation, perhaps Europe / Sweden need a Lincoln or Trump of their own to bridge diverse communities.
