Law enforcement has claimed that the singer's dog-walker was targeted by thieves, TMZ reported.
Ryan Fischer had 3 of Gaga's French Bulldogs when one gunman - and possibly more - approached him.
Details surrounding their altercation remained unclear in the beginning.
But Fischer was shot and the gunman made off with 2 of the dogs.
The third dog ran away but was later recovered.
According to Metro, Fischer, who reportedly sustained 4 gunshots to the chest in the incident, was in "grave" condition when he was transported to the hospital. However, TMZ has since reported he's expected to make a full recovery.
The star offered a staggering $500,000 to anyone who safely returns her dogs...
With "no questions asked."
After the offer was made, TMZ managed to obtain new video footage of the incident via a neighbor's security camera.
In the clip, you can see Lady Gaga's dog walker get approached by a few men who tell him to "give [them] up" before shooting him in the chest multiple times.
Fischer can be heard screaming for help throughout the incident.
Even despite the traumatic nature of the clip...
