A pharmacist in Cheyenne, Wyoming, shot a robbery suspect who entered the pharmacy with a toy gun last Saturday morning.

According KGWN, Nathan Mundt entered the Medicap Pharmacy wearing a black mask.

Cheyenne Police Chief Brian Kozak said Mundt was also "brandishing what the employees believed to be a firearm."

The weapon turned out be a realistic-looking black toy gun, noted the Wyoming Tribune News.

Mundt allegedly demanded Percocet and Oxycodone, but pharmacist Jackson Quick, who was armed with a real gun, gave him a bullet in the chest instead.

Mundt was taken to a local hospital and is expected to survive.

"It appears that the bullet missed his vital organs and the suspect is in stable condition at the hospital," stated Chief Kozak.

The Cheyenne Police Department is not recommending charges against Quick, but Mundt will likely be charged with aggravated robbery and other crimes.
