Lady Gaga’s two French bulldogs were recovered unharmed on Friday in Los Angeles, the police said, two days after thieves stole the dogs and shot a man who was walking them.
The shooting took place on Wednesday night, and the Los Angeles Police Department later said that it appeared as though the gunmen had used a semiautomatic handgun. It was not clear why the dog walker, later identified by Lady Gaga as Ryan Fischer, had been shot.
Someone took the dogs to a Los Angeles police station at about 6 p.m. Friday, and a representative of Lady Gaga’s picked them up, said Officer Mike Lopez, a police spokesman. “The dogs are returned safely,” he said.
He declined to provide further details, saying the investigation was continuing.
No arrests had been made as of Thursday.
The Associated Press reported on Friday that a woman had taken the dogs to a Los Angeles police station. It quoted Capt. Jonathan Tippett of the Los Angeles Police Department as saying that the woman appeared to be “uninvolved and unassociated” with the attack.
Earlier on Friday, Lady Gaga wrote on Instagram that she was offering a $500,000 reward for the safe return of the dogs, Koji and Gustav. “My heart is sick and I am praying my family will be whole again with an act of kindness,” she wrote.
She also thanked Mr. Fischer, who was taken to a hospital after the shooting and was in serious but stable condition on Friday afternoon. He is in his 30s.
“I continue to love you Ryan Fischer, you risked your life to fight for our family,” she said in the post. “You’re forever a hero.”
