In Port St. Lucie, Florida, the dog that led a dispute and consequently the shooting of a father and his 11-year-old daughter has been killed. Roxi, the female bull mastiff, was humanely euthanized Wednesday morning after the legal owner, Mrs. Delserro, surrendered the dog because she was leaving town.
According to Channel 12 News, the feud between Ronald Delserro, 82, and his neighbors started back in March when their dogs got into a fight when Roxi had been off leash. While breaking up the skirmish, the two owners were bitten and had to have medical attention.
At the time, Roxi had to be quarantined at home and an investigation would later determine if she was to be classified as a dangerous dog. Meanwhile she was to be properly restrained at all times when outside of the owner’s home. The court decided Roxi was to be classified as a dangerous dog.
On Monday, Delserro broke into the home of his neighbor, Guy Alexander Hansman with his two guns and opened fire. Six people had been in the home when Delserro started shooting and four family members managed to escape. Guy Hansman and his 11-year-old daughter, Harper were shot and killed.
Port St. Lucie officers arrived and entered into a shootout with Delserro. One officer suffered a bullet wound to his arm and chest, but was protected by his bulletproof vest. The SWAT team found Delserro dead in a second story bedroom, but it is not known if he committed suicide.
Peace, Love, Dogs
