A man in a Santa costume was shot twice with a pellet gun while attending a toy giveaway in Washington this morning, according to WUSA9. He was apparently shot twice in the back while attending the 22nd annual Barry Farm toy drive, with the pellets seemingly fired from a nearby home. The man suffered minor injuries and was transported to a hospital with a pellet still lodged in his shoulder, according to WJLA. Police are investigating the scene.

The man was in the middle of an interview when the incident occurred, so the ordeal was captured on video.
