Authorities have reported the capture of a suspect who was unintentionally freed from a Los Angeles County jail after being detained on suspicion of shooting Lady Gaga’s dog walker and stealing her French bulldogs.
James Howard Jackson, 19, was detained on Wednesday, almost five months after being let go from custody while awaiting trial “due to a clerical error,” according to a statement from the county Sheriff’s Department.
After four months, the alleged shooter of Lady Gaga’s dog walker is apprehended.
James Jackson, a 19-year-old suspect in an attempted murder, was “apprehended without incident” while a search warrant was being executed in Palmdale, California, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office.
The re-arrest occurred on the same day that Jaylin White, another defendant in the case, entered a “no contest” plea to second-degree robbery and received a four-year jail sentence.
Jackson was one of five people detained in relation to the Hollywood attack on February 24, 2021.
U.S. Marshals Service announced a reward of up to $5,000
The U.S. Marshals Service announced a reward of up to $5,000 last month for information that results in his capture.
One of the three males accused in the crime, who was arrested with Jackson, entered a not guilty plea to second-degree robbery.
According to NBC4, Deputy District Attorney Michele Hanisee announced that 20-year-old Jaylin Keyshawn White was promptly given a four-year state prison sentence.
They followed Ryan Fischer as he walked Lady Gaga’s dogs close to Sunset Boulevard and robbed him
According to the prosecution, Jackson and two other alleged gang members drove around looking for pricey French bulldogs to steal. They then followed Ryan Fischer as he walked Lady Gaga’s dogs close to Sunset Boulevard and robbed him. Fischer was with Asia, Koji, and Gustav, the pop star’s three canines.
Fischer was beaten, choked, and eventually shot after a struggle that was seen on the doorbell video of a nearby house.
Fischer discussed the severe nerve damage a gunshot causes.
A gunshot that tore through Fischer’s upper right torso caused severe nerve damage, which Fischer detailed, and doctors had to amputate a portion of his lung because it kept collapsing. He claimed that he still has mobility and respiratory problems.
The mental and emotional devastation you brought on that night, he said, “has been far worse. Fischer sobbed openly as he explained that the nearly deadly attack has prevented him from resuming his once-thriving animal care company.
Fischer may be seen shouting, “Oh, my God! “I was shot!” “Support me!” additionally saying, “My chest is bleeding!”
Fischer had a lung injury. He wrote on Instagram a month or so after the crime that his recovery was going well.
Lady Gaga’s promise of a $500,000 reward
Two days later, a lady who claimed to have discovered the pop star’s canines chained to a pole returned them and inquired about Lady Gaga’s promise of a $500,000 reward if the puppies were returned “no questions asked.” The artist was filming a movie at the time in Rome.
The woman was accused of receiving stolen stuff, while the suspect’s father is accused of assisting the other suspect in eluding capture.
When the county district attorney’s office filed a superseding indictment charging Jackson with attempted murder, conspiring to commit a robbery, and assault with a semiautomatic pistol, Jackson had already been charged with the attack and had entered a not guilty plea.
The person who gave the dogs back to police a few days later claimed to have found them tied to a pole by accident. Her name is McBride, and she is said to be a friend of Harold White.
The pre-trial hearing for the case’s remaining suspects, who have entered not guilty pleas, is scheduled on September 20.
