If you’re one of the millions outside playing ‘Pokemon Go,’ be careful where you try to ‘catch em all’ — because you might accidentally catch a bullet instead.

According to authorities, a Florida man shot at two ‘Pokemon Go’ players in a car outside of his home. Thankfully, no one was injured.

Flagler County Sheriff’s Office spokesman James Troiano says in a news release that the homeowner awoke to a noise outside about 1:30 a.m. Saturday and saw a car sitting in the road in front of his house. He told authorities he got a handgun and approached the vehicle.

Troiano says the two teens in the car sped away and the man fired several shots at them.

Later that morning, he says, the mother of one of the teens called the sheriff’s office when they realized the car had a flat tire and several bullet holes in it. She told officials the two had been playing the smartphone app.

Be safe out there, guys, No Pikachu is worth your life.
