There were five suspects: James Jackson who's 18-years-old, Jaylin White who's 19-years-old, Layfayette Whaley who's 27-years-old, Harold White who's 40-years-old and Jennifer McBride who's 50-years-old. 

Jackson, Jaylin and Whaley were involved in the robbery and shooting and are being booked for attempted murder. While White and McBride were arested on suspicion of being an accessory to attempted murder.They went into court on Thursday afternoon, and they all pleaded not guilty. Now they will reappear in court on May 11th.

It’s said that they did not pick the dog walker, Ryan Fischer because of the owner of the dogs (Lady Gaga), but that instead they picked him because of the value of the breed of the dog. 

The incident happened at 9:40pm on Feb 24th, while Lady Gaga was in rome to film a movie. When notified, the singer offered a $500,000 reward in the case, saying there would be no questions asked.McBride was the person who turned the dogs into the LAPD, two days after they were taken.
