The Bad Romance singer’s dogwalker, Ryan Fischer, was reportedly shot four times by two men in LA, before they took two of her French bulldogs.
Dogs Koji and Gustavo were stolen, but third dog Miss Asia managed to escape, and was later recovered by police – with the star later offering a huge reward for their return.
Following the crime, her famous pals have rushed to offer their support on social media.
The Big Bang Theory star Kaley shared the news on her Instagram story, with the message: ‘This is devastating..
‘I hope they find her dogs and put this disgusting criminal away!’
Taking to Twitter, YouTube star Jeffree penned: ‘I can’t even fathom this. Praying that Ryan makes a full recovery and Lady Gaga gets her dogs back.
‘This is so f**king awful.’
While actor Danny Trejo tweeted: ‘So sorry to hear about your dogs @ladygaga, we got people out there looking for them.’
Ryan had been caring for Gaga’s beloved pets while the singer is working on a new movie in Italy.
He had been walking Gaga’s pooches, Miss Asia, Koji and Gustavo, in West Hollywood at around 10pm on Wednesday.
The dogwalker was allegedly shot outside of his home on Sierra Bonita Avenue by the attackers.
Police arrived on the scene to find him conscious but barely breathing, and he was rushed to hospital in a ‘grave’ condition.
A spokesperson for LAPD confirmed to Metro.co.uk that the victim remains ‘critically ill’ and ‘no arrests’ have been made so far.
Metro.co.uk understands that Lady Gaga is offering $500,000 (£353,492) to anyone who has her two dogs, ‘no questions asked’.
