Lady Gaga’s Dog Walker Shot In Chest 4 Times, Dogs Stolen

Los Angeles, CA – Lady Gaga’s dog walker was shot in the chest four times on Wednesday night by a suspect who snatched two of the entertainer’s French bulldogs and fled.

The incident occurred just before 10 p.m. on Feb. 25 when 30-year-old Ryan Fischer was walking Lady Gaga’s three dogs in West Hollywood, the Daily Mail reported.

Police said Fischer was ambushed by the gunman and shot outside his home on Sierra Bonita Avenue.

He was shot four times in the chest, according to the New York Post.

The kidnapper took two of the three dogs – Koji and Gustavo – but video from the scene showed the dog walker on the ground holding on to Miss Asia.

Fischer was transported to a nearby hospital and treated for his gunshot wounds, the Daily Mail reported.

Los Angeles Police Department officers took custody of Miss Asia until she could be retrieved by one of Lady Gaga’s bodyguards.

Lady Gaga is in Italy and was said to be distraught about the attack on Fischer and her missing pets, the New York Post reported.

She has offered a $500,000 reward – no questions asked – for the return of her dogs.

Sources said that Fischer was “thankfully recovering well” from the violent attack, the New York Post reported.

Law enforcement sources told TMZ that they don’t know if the shooter intentionally targeted the superstar’s pets, or if he was just after the expensive French bulldogs that are reportedly in high demand.

The gunman was still on the loose as of Thursday morning, TMZ reported.
