Just weeks following American rapper A$AP Rocky’s (Rakim Mayers) release from jail in Sweden on assault charges. Respected Swedish lawyer Henrik Olsson Lilja, who represented the hip-hop star for the beginning half of the case was reportedly shot.

According to Expressen newspaper, the shooting occurred Friday morning in Stockholm right outside of Lilja’s apartment as he was leaving the building. The gunman is said to have shot the victim in the head and chest area.

The suspect was allegedly waiting on Lilja to exit his home to pursue the attack. After firing several shots, he then jumped in a nearby SUV to escape the crime scene.

The lawyer’s condition is unknown at this time. There are currently no reports connecting the matter to Rocky’s assault case. Police are investigating the shooting as an isolated incident.

Per a Polisen report, “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 shooter has not yet been identified.

Report: Notorious Sex Trafficker, Jeffrey Epstein Dies by Suicide behind Bars

Billionaire financier and convicted sex trafficking offender Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in his jail cell Saturday, according to multiple reports.

Epstein’s, 66, sudden death has been ruled a suicide.

He was convicted of two sex crimes in 2008, including solicitation of a person under the age of 18, and later sentenced to 18 months in prison, which many viewed as a light punishment for the crimes he committed.

Epstein’s death comes a day after thousands of documents were unsealed in against Ghislaine Maxwell, a friend of Epstein that allegedly lured adolescent girls for Epstein to traffic.

The accuser, Virginia Giuffre, claims she was forced to have sex with Epstein and international high-profile figures, including Prince Andrew, while she was a minor.

In late July, Epstein was found injured in his jail cell with marks on his neck. He was placed on suicide watch following the incident.

According to TMZ, multiple injuries have been reported on-site at the Nipsey Hussle memorial in response to a supposed gunshot that was heard near the area.

Just one day following the news of the rapper, 33, being fatally shot outside of his Los Angeles-based retail store, thousands of fans came out to show support. A tribute that was meant to be peaceful turned into chaos after dozens began to scramble in the crowd over the loud noise which can be seen from several vantage points in the overhead cameras.

The LAPD released a statement saying, “Our men and women are on scene and making every effort to protect everyone in attendance at the Nipsey Hussle vigil. Reports of shots fired at the vigil do not appear to be accurate. We do have injured in the chaos and are attempting to restore order.”

The statement continues, “We understand the community is mourning and we feel your loss. We are asking for everyone to follow the officers directions and disperse from the immediate area.”

The LAPD has also identified a suspect in the killing of the hip-hop star on Monday night.

Eric Holder, a 29-year-old Los Angeles resident, is believed to have opened fire at Hussle and two other victims on Slauson Avenue in the Hyde Park section of the city Sunday afternoon.

“Eric Holder is wanted for Homicide in the shooting of Nipsey Hussle,” the LAPD wrote in a tweet.

“He was last seen in a 2016 white 4 door Chevy Cruze CA license plate 7RJD742. Anyone with information related to his whereabouts or this deadly shooting is urged to contact South Bureau Homicide.”

Nipsey Hussle is survived by his two children: daughter Emani from a previous relationship and son Kross with his girlfriend, actress Lauren London
