A Pennsylvania man wielding a toy gun and another man holding a stick tried to hold up a 67-year-old walking around town according to Fox News.

Unfortunately for the thieves, the 67-year-old was packing a .38 caliber handgun and shot the man holding the toy gun in the head, killing him.

The incident took place around 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday in Cobbs Creek Park near the 6700 block of Short Lane in Upper Darby, police said.

Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said a 67-year-old man was walking when he was confronted by two masked men. One was carrying a stick and the other a toy gun.

The man then pulled out his own .38 caliber handgun and shot one of the suspects in the head, police said. That man, who police say is in his late teens or early 20’s, died at the scene.

Chitwood said the toy looked like a real weapon and police didn’t know it was a fake until they got a close look at it.
