There is also new surveillance video of the brazen shooting and dog-napping.
A day after someone shot Lady Gaga's dog walker and stole two of the singer's pups, her dad, Joe Germanotta, has issued a plea for the return of the beloved canines. "Shooting someone in order to steal dogs is wrong," Germanotta told Fox News on Thursday (Feb. 25), urging the public to help the family "catch these creeps."
The incident occurred just before 10:00 p.m. on 1500 block of Sierra Bonita Avenue on Wednesday as the 30-year-old victim was walking the singer's dogs, Koji and Gustav, when a gunman shot him once, took the dogs and fled the scene, LAPD officer Drake Madison said. A third dog was able to escape and later collected by officers in the area.
The suspect was seen fleeing in a white vehicle, north on Sierra Bonita Avenue towards Hollywood Boulevard, police said. Robbery-homicide division detectives have taken over the case. Gaga has offered a $500,000 reward, no questions asked, for her dogs' safe return and anyone with information on the dogs can email KojiandGustav@gmail.com.
