Two of Lady Gaga’s French bulldogs were stolen and one of her assistants shot in the process Wednesday night (Feb. 24), The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
The incident occurred just before 10:00 p.m. on 1500 block of Sierra Bonita Avenue as the 30-year-old victim was walking the singer’s dogs 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.
The victim was listed in critical condition Thursday morning (Feb. 25).
Gaga has offered a $500,000 reward, no questions asked, for her dogs’ safe return. Anyone who has the dogs or information can email KojiandGustav@gmail.com.
