Looks like someone in Washington, D.C., just landed on Santa Claus’ naughty list this year.
A man dressed as Jolly Old St. Nick was shot with a pellet gun at a toy giveaway in a Washington neighbourhood on Tuesday.
Local TV station, WJLA ABC-7 captured the incident on camera, as the man in red was hit in the shoulder while walking down a street to give toys to 600 kids in a public housing complex.
“I’d much rather it be me than anyone else – one of these kids,” the victim told the TV station as he was being treated.
He was wheeled away by paramedics, but is expected to make a full recovery.
