A man wearing a Santa Claus suit was shot with a pellet gun Tuesday morning at a toy giveaway in Southeast Washington.

WUSA9's Delia Gonçalves said the man was shot twice in the back, apparently from a nearby home, at the 22nd annual Barry Farm toy drive.

The victim was transported to a local hospital to have one of the pellets removed.

The toy drive went on as planned, and officials say it will continue at the Barry Farm next year.
