On Wednesday night, two men shot Lady Gaga’s dogwalker in the chest four times in Los Angeles. Following the shooting, the men stole two of the star’s three French bulldogs.
Ryan Fischer had been walking Gaga’s adorable pups named Koji, Miss Asia, and Gustavo, at around 10 pm yesterday when he was shot outside of his home on Sierra Bonita Avenue in the West Hollywood area.
When police arrived on the scene, they found Fischer conscious but was barely breathing. According to officials, he was immediately transported to a hospital but was in “grave” condition.
Fischer had been taking care of the three dogs while Lady Gaga is away in Italy filming a new movie. Police described the suspects in the shooting as two black males who were wearing baseball caps.
Following the shooting, they reportedly fled the scene northbound on Sierra Bonita Avenue in a white BMW.
Dogwalker’s Condition Remains Unknown, One of Lady Gaga’s Dogs Found
Currently, the dog walker’s medical condition is unknown. It is also unclear whether the suspects targeted the dogs because they belong to Gaga, as the French Bulldog breed is high in-demand and expensive. Police have not yet detained the suspects.
One of Gaga’s three french bulldogs, Miss Asia, has 236k followers on Instagram. In addition, she has also been featured with her mom in ad campaigns for companies.
She’s also made appearances on the cover of magazines including Harper’s Bazaar and V.
Koji, also known as “Little One,” was born on January 14, 2015. He has been Lady Gaga’s dog since April of 2015.
Lady Gaga has also had her other male french bulldog, Gustavo, since 2016.
In November 21, 2016, Lady Gaga announced the addition of the third member of her family.
“I’m proud to announce we added a new member to the #JOANNE family ? I haven’t named him yet but I call him both cowpig and moopig in the meantime!” she wrote on her Instagram, along with a picture of his two siblings welcoming their new little brother.
