In the felony complaint obtained by The Associated Press, prosecutors outlined the scary details surrounding that night in February. 

James Jackson, 18, Jaylin White, 19, and Lafayette Whaley, 27, were reportedly driving around the Los Angeles neighborhoods of Hollywood, West Hollywood, and the San Fernando Valley “looking for French bulldogs" to steal because of their high value.

That's when they spotted Gaga's dog walker Ryan Fischer, who was taking three of her pooches out for their last walk of the night. The connection to the Grammy winner was allegedly unknown. 

According to the complaint, the three suspects -- who are allegedly gang members with the nicknames Infant Dice, Lil Gudda, and LFace -- "tailed" Fischer along the famous Sunset Boulevard.

The complaint also alleges the dognapping suspects shut off the headlights on their sedan once Fischer turned onto a secluded street. Following him, the trio reportedly hit and choked Fisher before one of the suspects shot him with a semiautomatic handgun, striking him once and leaving him on the street, the prosecutors state. 

They then made off with Koji and Gustav.

Fischer's shooting was caught on a neighbor's doorbell camera and he was heard screaming for help during the violent struggle. He was hospitalized for weeks following the attack.

But they aren't the only suspects reportedly going down for the crime.

Jennifer McBride -- the alleged good Samaritan who "found" the dogs and returned them days later -- and Harold White were charged with one count each of accessory after the fact. White was also charged with one count of possession of a firearm while McBride faces one count of receiving stolen property.

While each of the suspects' bail was all set relatively high, McBride seemingly got off the easiest.

As reported, her bail was only set at $10,000, on the condition she wears an ankle bracelet following her release.'s attempts to reach Lady Gaga have gone unanswered.
