Santa Claus Shot With Pellet Gun During Toy Giveaway in Southeast D.C.


Santa Claus Shot by a Pellet Gun During Toy Giveaway (Mediaite)

It takes a real grinch to shoot Santa Claus the day before Christmas, but that’s precisely what happened to one man dressed as Saint Nick during a toy giveaway in Washington D.C.; he was struck by a pellet gun and had to go to the hospital. And the strangest part is that the entire thing was caught on camera.

A photographer from WJLA was speaking to the man in the big red suit, who was participating in a toy giveaway, when he was suddenly struck in the upper back by a pellet gun. People in the immediate area came over to see if he was all right, and Santa was sent to the hospital.
