Lady Gaga’s dog walker: Man accused of shooting in Los Angeles is sentenced to 4 years in prison

Jaylin White, 20, pleaded no contest to a second-degree robbery charge and admitted to an allegation that a member of the group was armed during the incident, according to Greg Risling, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

Other charges and indictments brought against White were dismissed, Risling told CNN. He had previously been charged with one count of attempted murder and conspiracy to commit robbery, according to the district attorney’s office.
The shooting and dog napping on Feb. 24 were caught on dramatic surveillance video that showed at least two men accosting Ryan Fischer, who was walking the star’s three French bulldogs.

A physical altercation ensued. Footage shows one attacker holding down the victim while another appears to be pointing a gun.

A shot is then heard and the victim falls backwards as the assailants run towards a car. Fischer, who was hit by gunfire and seriously injured, survived the attack.

Suspect mistakenly released from custody is recaptured

The assailants took two of the dogs, Koji and Gustav, but they were recovered days later after the singer posted a $500,000 reward.

White and four others were arrested weeks later in connection with the shooting and robbery. They included two people who faced cover-up charges after the fact.

One of the suspects, James Jackson, was mistakenly released from police custody in April due to what authorities called “a clerical error.”

Jackson was found and taken into custody Wednesday, following a search by multiple law enforcement agencies, including the US Marshals Service, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said.

Jackson is being held on attempted murder charges. Charges are still pending against a third suspect in the case.
