[su_right_ad]The shooting took place at a Detroit gas station.

Detroit police officials confirmed that the two victims — both 29-year-old men — were recovering from gunshot wounds following the incident at the Speedway on East Jefferson Ave. and I-375.

The festively dressed gunman, who is now in custody, told officers that he felt threatened after arguing with the pair and shot both men.

“An individual who was dressed as Santa and two other individuals got into some kind of confrontation,” said Detroit Police Officer Adam Madera. “Two of the individuals went to their vehicle; they believe that Santa felt maybe that they were going to get a weapon. He then shot these individuals.”

Madera said that two off-duty officers in the area engaged in a short foot chase with the suspect and directed him to an on-duty officer who made the arrest.[su_csky_ad]

      When I still believed in Santa all I wanted for Christmas was a list of the bad little girls.

    This defense has already been used successfully in that paragon of freedum, Florida. In that case I believe the perp shot the man in the back and he died. Welcome to merica.

    Santa’s racking up quite an arrest record. Few years back I saw him cuffed and being taken out of a beer joint/sandwich shop in a rural western NC crossroads town. He was a cussing and staggering and I thought to myself – that guy’s gonna wind up no good, and now – sure enough -next thing you know, he’ll be showing up at parties slurring out ‘do you know who I am?’- before taking a real azz whuppin’. Must be the effects of the polar magnetic field mixed with rot gut whiskey?
