Lady Gaga’s dog walker was shot dead and two of her French bulldogs were stolen during an armed robbery Wednesday night.
TMZ reports that Lady Gaga’s dog walker was out with the singer’s three French bulldogs in Hollywood shortly before 10:00 p.m. local time.

The third dog – Asia – escaped and was later rescued by the police.
The dog walker has been hospitalized but a full recovery is expected. The shooter remains at large.
