Dramatic and scary audio was captured in the minutes following the brutal shooting of Lady Gaga’s assistant after armed gunman opened fire and kidnapped two of the singer’s dogs.
According to the emergency audio, the ‘Born This Way’ singer’s dog walker — Ryan Fischer — was shot by an unknown assailant who fled the scene in a four-door white vehicle. The suspect kidnapped two of Gaga’s three French bulldogs, which were on the walking in West Hollywood. The dramatic scene unfolded on a recorded line after onlookers called 911.

“Shooting just occurred … caller heard one gunshot and a female screaming,” a 911 dispatcher said directing officers to North Sierra Bonita Avenue and Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood.
The audio continued, “One male down … male conscious and breathing, approximately 35-years-old, suffering from a gunshot wound.”
The 911 call came in at approximately 9:40 pm after authorities say Lady Gaga’s dog walker was shot FOUR times in the chest in an apparent robbery. The gunman made off with two of Gaga’s beloved french bulldogs, Gustavo and Koji. The third dog, Miss Asia, was left behind and found nearby after officers arrived on the scene.

In the audio, the 911 dispatcher is heard confirming the kidnapping of Gaga’s pets, saying, “two small dogs” were taken by the suspects who were last seen driving towards Hollywood Blvd.
At the time, officers believed the car to be a white Nissan, Mercedes Benz, or BMW. But, later in the call, you can hear them clarify that it was a new Mercedes with tinted windows and no license plates.
According to reports, LAPD Robbery Homicide Division has taken over the case, which normally is assigned high-profile cases involving celebrities.
Lada Gaga, who is currently in Italy filming a movie, offered a $500,000 reward for any information about the robbery and return of her dogs — “no questions asked.”
Obviously, LAPD has a ton of questions and is investigating the incident as a robbery. Gaga’s assistant is reportedly recovering in a nearby hospital and is expected to survive.
At this point, the motive of the robbery is unclear, or if the suspects knew they were targeting Lady Gaga’s pets. We’re told pure breed dogs of this breed can be worth thousands of dollars, but shooting someone four times in a snatch and grab seems extremely brutal if that is the motive.
The shooter remains at large.
