One of the Swedish attorneys who fought for A$AP Rocky's freedom is now fighting for his life after becoming the target of a shooting ambush in Sweden.

Attorney, Henrik Olssen Lilja was shot multiple times, including the head and chest, during an attack that went down Friday morning in the Swedish capitol of Stockholm.

Lilja represented A$AP Rocky when the rapper was initially arrested back in July, and fought for his release. The attorney was later replaced when the case eventually went to trial.

Miraculously, Lilja survived the shooting and was able to call emergency responders for himself, according to Swedish news outlet, Expressen.

According to police, witnesses saw Lilja wrestling with a man in a nearby stairwell before the shooting occurred.

The shooter is described as a man who fled into a waiting black SUV, that sped away after being chased by officers.

According to Expressen, a woman, who is also a lawyer, has been arrested in connection with the shooting.

She had been previously barred from contacting Lilja, under a type of restraining order, and it's unclear what her alleged role was in the shooting.

Officials are treating the shooting as an "isolated incident," and although Lilja was conscious when emergency responders arrived, his current condition is unknown.
