The alleged gunman erroneously released from jail after he was charged 

with shooting Lady Gaga’s dog walker and stealing two of her French bulldogs was recaptured 

Wednesday while hiding out in a high desert community in northern Los Angeles County, authorities said.

Attempted murder suspect James Jackson, 19, was “apprehended without incident” 

during the service of a search warrant in Palmdale, California, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office said. 

Jackson was released from jail by mistake in April after a “clerical error” made it appear that the attempted murder, 

second-degree robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery charges against him had been dismissed. 

He first was arrested in the case in April 2021 along with White, 20, and third alleged assailant Lafayette Whaley, 28.

It wasn’t immediately clear Wednesday how authorities finally located Jackson.

The remaining suspects in the case have pleaded not guilty and are due back in court Sept. 20 for a pre-trial hearing.
