A FedEx delivery man came to Hansen’s home in Brooklyn and knocked on the door.
Hansen, 28, thought it was police at the door so he hid under the couch. His gun then discharged, killing him, according to the FBI.
Hansen was wanted on federal charges and considered armed and dangerous. He faced a federal indictment in April, but remained at large.
The FBI and NYPD say he was a member of a violent interstate robbery crew from Brooklyn that also orchestrated heists in Atlantic City and Virginia.
Police also said two other men were indicted in connection with the Nov. 6, 2013, robbery. Their alleged roles were not detailed, although one also is sought in connection with the theft of $700,000 worth of watches from a Cartier store in New York.
Police previously announced the arrests of Roberto Grant and Allen Williams. Sources told 1010 WINS’ Carol D’Auria the two were allegedly found in the getaway car, each wearing one of the stolen watches. They face robbery charges.READ MORE: New Video Shows Suspected Gunman, Car Used To Flee Scene Of Deadly Bronx Double Shooting

Dehoyos is 38 or 39, black, 6’1″, approximately 200 pounds and can occasionally be found in East New York, Springfield Gardens and Flushing, authorities said.
Both men are considered armed and dangerous.
