Lady Gaga is offering a $500,000 reward after her dog walker was shot, resulting in the theft of two of the singer’s French bulldogs, Koji and Gustav.
As reported by TMZ, on Wednesday night in Los Angeles, the dog walker had three of the musician’s bulldogs when at least one alleged gunman shot him and walked away with two of the animals.
Law enforcement sources told the outlet that the third dog had run away but was later recovered. Per a paparazzi photo, a bodyguard was photographed holding the third dog.
A Los Angeles Police Department spokesperson told People that the male victim was transported to a hospital and is currently in critical condition. TMZ reports he is expected to make a full recovery.
A spokesperson also says the alleged shooter, a male who used a semi-automatic handgun, was seen leaving in a vehicle going northbound toward Hollywood Boulevard.
LAPD's Robbery-Homicide Division has taken over the case.
Per TMZ, Gaga, who is currently in Italy filming a movie, is offering $500,000 for the return of her dogs, "no questions asked."
Anyone who has the dogs can email KojiandGustav@gmail.com to retrieve the reward.
TMZ adds that it is unclear if the alleged gunman targeted Gaga’s dogs specifically, or if the suspect was on the hunt for bulldogs in general.
As of this writing, the suspect is still on the loose.
