It appears that the dognapping of Lady Gaga’s two French bulldogs and shooting of her dogwalker might have been no regular incident.

The dognappers had gotten away with stealing Koji and Gustav, while Gaga’s third dog escaped.

According to TMZ, a source told the outlet that cops believe the incident may have been part of a gang initiation. Similar crimes have reportedly taken place around the Los Angeles area and could have been the M.O. in Gaga’s case.

The woman who returned the dogs back to the singer also reportedly hasn’t yet gotten her $500,000 reward, with authorities telling Gaga to hold off until they make sure the woman wasn’t part of the theft.

The police apparently don’t think that woman was involved, but they’re still looking into it.

Days after the incident, a woman handed the dogs over to officers at an LAPD station, saying she found the dogs and wanted to bring them in. Gaga is ready to pay the woman once she’s cleared.
