A man accused of shooting Lady Gaga´s dog walker and then stealing her two French bulldogs, was sentenced to 21 years in prison on Monday, December 5.

According to a report in the Associated Press, the dog walker named Ryan Fischer was shot by James Howard Jackson, one of three men who participated in the attack and robbery.   

The report then states, Jackson along with his accomplices, drove around the city of West Hollywood and the San Fernando Valley on Feb. 24, 2021, looking for French bulldogs. Upon discovering the dog walker with the three dogs on the famous Sunset Boulevard, Jackson shot Fisher and took two of the dogs.  

The main motive behind the attack, the report said, was the value of the breed, which sells for thousands of dollars. Detectives after the investigations also revealed that the attackers were unaware about the actual owner of the dogs.
