A man dressed as Santa Claus was shot with a pellet gun at a gift giveaway in the District of Columbia Tuesday morning.
The man in the Santa suit was shot at a toy giveaway in the Barry Farms neighborhood of Southeast D.C. early Christmas Eve. Two pellets were fired from the gun, one of which hit the man in the lower back.
The toy drive continued with a man dressed as the Grinch acting as a fill-in. The man in the Santa suit was taken to a local hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.
According to police the shooter is still at large.
