Woman Claiming To Be ‘Dr Dre Daughter’ Opens Fire On Busy L.A. Intersection [Video]

LOS ANGELES COUNTY, CA. (THECOUNT) — A woman in an SUV on a busy Los Angeles intersection, pointed a gun out the window of a vehicle while threatening to kill people. The woman fired as many a five shots during the scary Tuesday evening incident.

The woman driver, who later identified herself to police as “Dr. Dre’s Daughter,” appeared to be at a stop sign near South Fairfax Avenue and Olympic Blvd, in Los Angeles, around 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, when she was observed screaming and pointing a handgun out the window of a vehicle.

The entire incident was caught on video.

According to TMZ, the woman pointed the firearm and then asks an ominous question … “Anybody wanna die now? Anybody???” The woman appears to point the gun at different cars passing in front of her … it makes for a terrifying scene. Even scarier is what she did next — unload a round straight-up through her sunroof.

Luckily, it doesn’t look like she hit anyone or any cars — and law enforcement say police eventually caught up to her and were able to detain her without further incident.

TMZ says the woman was later arrested for felony negligent discharge of a firearm, and cops say she fired as many as 5 shots. In the video, she rants “The cow jumped over the moon” … so, it appears she was having a mental health episode.

There’s no supporting evidence that the woman is Dr. Dre’s daughter.

Lady Gaga Dog Walker Shot In Hollywood Beloved Bulldogs Stolen $500K Reward

HOLLYWOOD, CA. (THECOUNT) — Singer Lady Gaga is offering a $500,000 reward for the safe return of her beloved bulldogs who were stolen in an armed robbery where the employee walking the pups was shot Wednesday night.

Gaga, 34, who is currently in Italy, is offering $500,000 for the return of her dogs, “no questions asked,” for the return of the dogs.

The dogs were targeted by thieves Wednesday night who shot her dog walker and stole a pair her French Bulldogs.

The dog walker had three of Gaga’s Bulldogs out in Hollywood just before 10 PM when one gunman — and possibly more — came upon him. We don’t know what was said, but the dog walker was shot and the gunman made off with 2 of the dogs, , according to TMZ.

There are reports there were only 2 Bulldogs being walked with one taken and one escaped that was later found, but our law enforcement sources tell us 3 dogs were being walked and 2 were taken by the gunman. We’re told the 3rd dog had run away but was later recovered.

Gaga’s, whose real name is, Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, has been in Rome working on a new movie. Her bodyguard was seen picking up the recovered bulldog. Sources close to Gaga tell us she’s extremely upset and is offering a half-a-million dollars to anyone who has her 2 dogs.

Law enforcement does not know if the target was Lady Gaga’s dogs specifically. French Bulldogs are in demand and expensive, so our sources say it’s possible the gunman did not know the dogs were owned by Lady Gaga.

The dog walker was taken to the hospital. He is expected to make a full recovery.

The gunman is still on the loose.
