LOS ANGELES – Lady Gaga’s dog walker, who was shot dead in a Hollywood robbery last week when two of the singer’s French bulldogs were stolen, described the violence and recovery “from a very close call to death” on social media Monday .
Ryan Fischer’s posts included pictures from his hospital bed saying, “(Much) remains to be healed,” but he looks forward to reuniting with the dogs.
Fischer was shot and killed once while walking three of Lady Gaga’s dogs on a street just off famous Sunset Boulevard on Wednesday night. The video captured by the doorbell camera of a nearby house kept Fischer’s screams of “Oh my god! I was shot!” and “Help me!” and “I’m bleeding from my chest!”
Police are looking for two men in the attack and said Monday they are still investigating.
The two dogs Koji and Gustav were brought back unharmed on Friday evening when a woman showed up with them at a Los Angeles police station. Detectives don’t believe she was involved in the robbery or shooting, and didn’t know if she would receive the $ 500,000 reward Lady Gaga offered for returning the dogs. The singer is currently in Rome to make a film.
Fischer thanked Lady Gaga for her support during the ordeal and wrote: “Your babies are back and the family is whole … we made it!” in Instagram posts. A third dog named Asia escaped the attackers and lay down next to Fischer “while a car sped away and blood flowed from my gunshot wound,” he wrote.
The doorbell video shows a white limousine pulling up and two men jumping out. They fought the dog walker before one pulled a gun and fired a single shot before escaping with two of the dogs.
