At least five of the attackers that stole two French bulldogs belonging to US artist Lady Gaga have been arrested over.

Lady Gaga’s dogs, Koji and Gustav were taken away after attackers shot walker Ryan Fischer in the chest in February.

Mr Fischer who survived the attack, had part of his lung removed but has since left the hospital.

According to Los Angeles police, three suspects were charged for the incident on Thursday itself as well as two others as accomplices.

Those that were charged with attempted murder and robbery are James Jackson, Jaylin White and Lafayette Whaley – aged 18, 19, and 27, respectively.

Others are that were charged with accessory to attempted murder are: 40-year-old Harold White – Jaylin White’s father – and Jennifer McBride, 50.

Two days after the theft, after Lady Gaga had offered a $500,000 (£359,000) reward for their return, Ms McBride returned the dogs to the police
