Lady Gaga’s dogwalker was shot four times in the chest last night by two men. They stole two of the star’s three French bulldogs in Los Angeles around 10pm.
Ryan Fischer had been walking Gaga’s beloved dogs Koji, Miss Asia and Gustavo, in West Hollywood last night when he was shot outside of his home on Sierra Bonita Avenue.
The Daily Mail reports police arrived to find Fischer on the ground conscious, but barely breathing. Officials said he was transported to the hospital in “grave” condition.
Fischer had been caring for the three dogs while Gaga is away in Italy working on a new movie.
Two of Gaga’s dogs, Koji and Gustavo, were stolen. Miss Asia escaped and was later recovered by police.
Law enforcement does not know if the target was Lady Gaga’s dogs specifically. French Bulldogs are in demand and expensive, sources say it’s possible the gunmen did not know the dogs were owned by Lady Gaga, gossip web site TMZ reports. TMZ reports that Gaga is offering $500,000 for the return of the dogs, “no questions asked.”
The story is developing.
