13 February 1984
Andre Stander, former police officer, South African fugitive and leader of the Stander Gang consisting of Patrick Lee McCall, Allan Heyl and Stander himself, was shot dead by a United States of America (USA) police officer, Michael van Stetina. Stander was confronted by Van Stetina and got embroiled in a scuffle over Van Stetina's shotgun, which resulted in him being shot. He died on the wet driveway to his apartment block while waiting for an ambulance. Stander had fled to the USA after McCall was shot dead by police during a raid of one of the apartments in Johannesburg, where he was hiding. Heyl fled to Europe and was later caught in England. The gang of three had become notorious particularly after they robbed three banks in less than an hour in January 1984.
