Henrik Olsson Lilja, the lawyer who first represented A$AP Rocky in his Swedish assault case, has been shot in Stockholm.

Lilja suffered gunshot wounds to the head and chest at his Stockholm apartment building on Friday morning, TMZ reported. The gunman walked up to the lawyer as he left the building and opened fire.

The attorney survived the shooting, but his condition was not known. The gunman fled in a waiting SUV.

Lilja represented A$AP Rocky when he was arrested for a June street brawl, but was eventually replaced by a separate legal team before the rapper’s trial started.

A$AP Rocky, real name Rakim Mayers, said he was defending himself. But the rapper and his associates were convicted in the case on Aug. 14.

The New York hip-hop star was given a conditional sentence, meaning he won’t have to serve prison time unless he commits a similar offense in Sweden.
