Santa, a moment before getting shot in the back.

Santa, a moment before getting shot in the back.

While making the rounds in southeast DC today, Santa was shot by a pellet gun.  The incident, which was captured by cameras from WJLA Channel 7, shows a jolly Kris Kringle walking down the street, then bending over & wincing in pain, while the cameraman keeps rolling and repeatedly asks, “Want me to call 911?”

Santa was transported to a local hospital, but no word on how this incident will affect his rounds tonight. He was in the neighborhood for a local toy drive.

Stay classy, DC.
