According to the Associated Press, which first reported the story, LAPD said the woman who dropped off the dogs appeared to be “uninvolved and unassociated” with the attack.
As of 7 p.m., LAPD said the dogs were in the custody of Lady Gaga’s representative. The singer is currently in Rome filming a movie.READ MORE: Authorities Looking For Offender Who Left Los Angeles Rehabilitation Facility
The dog walker, Ryan Fisher, was shot once while he was walking three of the singer’s dogs Wednesday night in Hollywood. Video from the scene showed a white sedan pulling up and two men jumping out before firing a single shot and fleeing with two of the dogs.
Fisher was in stable condition and expected to make a full recovery.
Earlier Friday, Lady Gaga repeated her offer of a $500,000 reward for the return of the dogs, Koji and Gustav.
