Santa shot with pellet gun


WASHINGTON, D.C.: A man dressed as Santa Claus was recovering after being shot in the back with a pellet gun on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila) at a toy giveaway in Washington. A local news crew was interviewing the unnamed man at the time of the Christmas Eve shooting in the capital’s Southeast district and filmed the morning incident. The man was struck in the upper back and could be seen bending over, reaching for his back and screaming out in pain after loud popping sounds. “It’s a pellet gun,” he said between moans, as concerned neighbors gathered around him. “Someone’s shooting. Someone just shot me,” the man added.
