LAPD releases description of suspects in Lady Gaga dognapping
The Los Angeles Police Department has released a description of the two men who shot Lady Gaga’s dog walker and stole two of her beloved French bulldogs.
Both of the suspects are described as black males, between the ages of 20 and 25, who were seen in a white Nissan Altima with four doors, cops said in a Thursday night news release.
The suspect who shot the dog walker, Ryan Fischer, 30, was armed with a semi-automatic handgun, has blond dreadlocks and was wearing a black hoodie, police said.
The second suspect was wearing dark clothing, cops said.
Fischer, described by Gaga’s father Joe Germanotta as a “friend” who “risked his life protecting” the dogs, was walking the celebrity pets on North Sierra Bonita Avenue near Sunset Boulevard Wednesday night around 9:40 p.m. when he was ambushed by the suspects.

They demanded he turn over the dogs and when Fischer put up a fight, he was shot in the chest, cops said.
The suspects made off with two of the pups, Gustav and Koji, while Miss Asia got away and has since been returned to Gaga’s team.
