A man dressed as Santa Claus was shot while delivering toys to children in Southeast Washington, according to WUSA9.

Reporter Delia Gonçalves reported that Santa was shot twice in the back with a pellet gun at the 22nd Annual toy drive at Barry Farms, a mostly public housing area in the Anacostia neighborhood. The gun shot likely came from a nearby home, she reported.

Police and fire officials were on the scene. Gonçalves reported that Santa suffered minor injuries.
