Five people have been arrested for the theft of Lady Gaga’s dogs, including the woman who returned the pets, Los Angeles police said.
The French Bulldogs, named Asia, Koji and Gustav, were caught on February 24 in a violent attack in which their walker Ryan Fischer was shot.
Mr Fischer, who survived the attack, said on social media he had “very close contact with death”.
The attack, which took place on Hollywood’s famous Sunset Boulevard, was caught on a doorbell camera from a nearby house.
In the video, two men jumped out of a white sedan, assaulting Mr. Fischer and pulling out a gun.
Only one shot was fired and the men fled with the dogs.
Mr. Fischer is seen shouting “Oh my God I was shot” and “Help me” and “I am bleeding from my chest”.
The dogs are believed to have been taken for their monetary value and the thieves do not know who they belonged to, detectives said in a statement.
Lady Gaga offered a $ 500,000 “ no questions asked ” reward for their safe return, and they were taken to the Los Angeles Police Station two days later.
At the time, the woman appeared to be “uninvolved and not associated” with the crime, police said.
