Lady Gaga’s dog walker was reportedly shot in the chest four times in Los Angeles Wednesday night by gunmen.
According to police, two of Lady Gaga’s dogs, Koji and Gustavo, were stolen while her third bulldog, Miss Asia, managed to run away and was later recovered by police.
However, a male suspect fired a semi-automatic handgun at the dog-walker, named Ryan Fischer, before making off with the dogs.
The victim was transported to the hospital in an unknown condition, the police have confirmed.
Lady Gaga has offered a $500k reward for the return of her dogs, Koji and Gustav.
French Bulldogs are sought-after breeds in the United States (US), with healthy puppies selling for an average of $2,000. Those with exceptional breeding history can fetch as much as $10,000.
Lady Gaga is known to be extremely protective of her dogs, who have accompanied her to the American Music Awards.
Miss Asia even has an official Instagram account.
