Santa Claus is coming…to the emergency room!
A man dressed as Santa was SHOT in the back while walking through a neighborhood in Washington D.C. to give gifts out to needy children!
Xavier Hawkins, who had his red suit and white beard on, was captured on video the moment this all happened!
“Somebody just shot me! My back! Someone shot me with a pellet gun!”
Paramedics rushed to the scene and even though this do-gooder wanted to continue handing out presents, EMTs insisted he be taken to the hospital for further treatment.
The kids still got their gifts though as the Grinch (or at least someone dressed like him) stepped in to try and spread some holiday cheer after this scary scene!
We’re happy to report that Xavier was later released and is doing just fine!
He’s even planning on attending the toy drive next year and has already forgiven his attacker!
But who would ever want to shoot Santa?!?
Wait a second…
Xavier is black. And dressed as Santa. A black Santa…
Ohhhh, Megyn Kelly you better have an airtight alibi when the police show up at your house!
Ch-ch-check out the video below!
