Here Comes Shooty Claus…

Imagine if you live in the North Pole (Alaska). Everyone is happy, awaiting for another Christmas to arrive, until some dullard decides to rob someone on North Santa Claus Lane.

This reads like a Christmas nightmare. A man involved in an attempted robbery in North Pole, Alaska, was killed Wednesday — on North Santa Claus Lane.

In a news release, the North Pole Police Department said that Adam Selid, 18, was shot during a gun sale that turned into an attempted robbery, KTUU-TV reported. The shooting took place in the parking lot near a Taco Bell at North Santa Claus Lane, according to the television station.

The Taco Bell is necessary for all the gas Santa and the reindeer need for Christmas Eve.

Selid and Dalen Davis, 19, met with the seller and agreed to purchase the weapons at about 11:32 p.m. local time. According to police, Selid then pulled out a handgun and threatened the seller.

After a struggle, the seller produced his own weapon and fired one shot that struck Selid in the abdomen.

Unfortunately for Selid, he made the Darwinian Naughty List.

  1. Teenagers buying a gun at 11:30PM at Taco Bell. Sounds totally legit. I do all my gun purchases late at night. That’s when you get the best prices.

  2. Well, he won’t do that anymore.

    Ages listed: 18 & 19.

    Questions:
    How old was the seller?
    Did he know the ages of the “buyers?”
    Did he know the “buyers?”
    Did he know that it is a felony to sell a handgun to a minor?
    Where did the seller get the gun?
    How long did the seller have the gun after he obtained it?
    How did the seller obtain the gun?

    Inquiring minds want to know.

  3. Cathy – You get a free burrito with every purchase.

    TXNick – Well, you’d have to have a good journalist, instead of throwing out bare bones facts like this author did.

  4. Why on earth would you try and rob someone selling you a gun? Don’t these people ever engage their brains? (rhetorical question) One less idiot to deal with up there.
