This example will prevent the stealthkill animation of the attacker as it occurs, something which is tricky to achieve (hence this example is extra useful). Note: you won't get this to work properly without timer and 'fake' animation. Lots of scripters have broken their backs over this.

addEventHandler( "onPlayerStealthKill", getRootElement(),
    function(targetPlayer)
            setTimer(
                function(thePlayer)
                    setPedAnimation(thePlayer, "ped", "0", -1, true, true, true, true, 350)
                end, 50, 1, source
            )
    end
)
