Lady Gaga's dogs have been stolen. 

On Wednesday, Feb. 24, the pop star's dog walker was shot while out walking three of her French bulldogs, NBC News reported, citing Los Angeles police. According to reports, two of the three dogs were taken while one was recovered after running away. In photos taken by paparazzi, a police officer was seen carrying a dog in a lip-print harness that appears to be Gaga's pet, Asia. 

The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed to E! News that a single victim was shot around 9:40 p.m.  Meanwhile, an unknown male suspect was seen fleeing the area. 

Authorities told E! News the dog walker is expected to survive. At this point in the investigation, which is still ongoing, police say it's unclear whether or not this was a targeted attack because the dogs belong to Gaga. 

Meanwhile, the performer is said to be "extremely upset," TMZ reported, citing insiders connected to the star. To whoever has the two dogs, she is offering a $500,000 reward and they can reach out to
