Tragic news this morning as reports are surfacing that Lady Gaga’s dog walker was shot numerous times in the chest last night in Hollywood, California. The criminal who shot Lady Gaga’s dog walker then stole two of her French bulldogs.
WAN talked with LAPD Officer Tony Im, who confirmed that the incident took place last night. Officer Im however was not able to confirm that the dogs belong to Lady Gaga, noting that they do not release information on victims “regardless of their status.”
Officer Im explained that a single victim shooting occurred on the 1500 block of Sierra Bonita Avenue on Wednesday evening. A male suspect fired a semi-automatic handgun striking the 30-year-old male victim, who was subsequently transferred to a local hospital.
According to Officer Im, the suspect was observed fleeing in a white vehicle north of Sierra Bonita Avenue toward Hollywood Boulevard. An investigation is currently underway.
A representative for Lady Gaga reportedly confirmed that the shooting victim was Lady Gaga’s dog walker and that her French bulldogs, Koji and Gustav, were stolen. The singer-songwriter is offering a $500,000 reward for the dogs’ safe return.
Anyone with information or who has possession of the dogs can reportedly email KojiandGustav@gmail.com and also call the LAPD at 213.972.2971
WAN inquired if police thought this incident might be related to the theft of two English bulldogs earlier this week in North Hollywood, California, to which Officer Im replied that there is “no way to connect the two at this time.”
WAN is praying for the safe return of the two French Bulldogs and that justice will be served for the victim of this horrific crime.
