Lady Gaga‘s dog walker was shot and hospitalized in critical condition and two of her French bulldogs were stolen during a Wednesday night robbery, PEOPLE confirms.
A Los Angeles Police Department spokesperson tells PEOPLE a robbery occurred at 9:40 Wednesday night on Sierra Bonita Avenue in Hollywood, during which two French bulldogs were stolen.
The male victim was transported to the hospital and is currently in critical condition, an LAPD spokesman says. The shooter, described as a male who used a semi-automatic handgun, was seen leaving in a vehicle going northbound toward Hollywood Boulevard.
The LAPD’s robbery/homicide division has taken over the case.
A rep for Lady Gaga, who is currently in Italy, confirms the victim was the singer’s dog walker and the two dogs were her French bulldogs, Koji and Gustav.
The rep confirms Gaga is offering a $500,000 reward for information about the dogs.
Those with information on the case should email [email protected], the rep says.
In 2016, Gaga announced she’d adopted a new puppy who she would later name Gustav.
