Lady Gaga’s dog walker, Ryan Fischer, was shot in the chest four times in Los Angeles Wednesday night and is in grave condition, according to the New York Post.
The brazen gunmen then stole two of the superstar’s beloved bulldogs.
The distraught star, who is in Italy, is offering a $500,000 reward for the identity of the dog snatchers and the recovery of her pooches, according to reports.
Video at the scene showed a man on the ground still clinging to one dog, which the Mail said was Miss Asia. The victim appeared to be alert and talking to officers, KABC said.
