Lady Gaga’s dog walker was shot in the chest four times by two men in Los Angeles on Wednesday night who stole two of the star’s three French bulldogs.
Ryan Fischer, 30, had been walking Gaga’s beloved dogs Koji, Miss Asia and Gustavo, in West Hollywood at around 10 pm yesterday night when he was shot outside of his home on Sierra Bonita Avenue.
Police arrived to find Fischer conscious but barely breathing. He was transported to the hospital in a ‘grave’ condition, officials said.
Two of Gaga’s dogs, Koji and Gustavo, were stolen. Miss Asia, meanwhile, ran away and was later recovered by police.
Fischer had been caring for the three dogs while Gaga is away in Italy.
Police described the suspects in the shooting as two black males, who were wearing baseball caps.
They fled the scene northbound on Sierra Bonita Avenue in a white BMW, police said.
It’s currently unclear whether Gaga’s dogs were specifically targeted.
French bulldogs are in high demand and expensive. They typically sell for anywhere between $1,500-$3,000 on average, however those with pedigree lineage can go for as much as $10,000.
