On Wednesday night, Ryan Fischer, 30, had been walking Lady Gaga's beloved dogs Koji, Miss Asia and Gustav, in West Hollywood at around 10pm when he was shot in the chest.
Gaga, who’s filming in Rome, heard about the incident and quickly offered a reward of $500,000 for the safe return of her pooches. Fischer was taken to the hospital where he is recovering.
The FBI is investigating if the kidnapping of the dogs could be in retaliation to Gaga’s performance at President Biden’s inauguration. The agency said the dogs could be“ held for ransom.”
