Injured the man who walked Lady Gaga's dogs, the author is sentenced to 21 years in prison
The gunman who shot and wounded Lady Gaga's dog walker has been sentenced to 21 years in prison.
James Howard Jackson pleaded guilty to the incident that occurred in February 2021.
Ryan Fischer was walking the singer's three French bulldogs that day when Jackson shot him in the chest while trying to steal the dogs.
Fischer had part of his lung removed after the attack.
He testified at Monday's court hearing and said the shooting changed his life forever.
Jackson picked up two of the dogs, Koji and Gustav, after the hit. The third bulldog, Miss Asia, ran away and was later found by police.
At the time, police said they believed the dogs were targeted because of their breed and not because they belonged to the singer.
The two stolen dogs were returned unharmed two days later after Gaga offered a $500,000 reward.
