Delserro also died after exchanging gunfire with a St. Lucie County Sheriff’s deputy and police at the Hansman home on Southeast Morningside Boulevard. A police officer was shot in the arm and chest, but a bulletproof vest stopped the projectile.
Police said the incident apparently stemmed from a dispute over Delserro’s dog.
Julie Hansman, of Long Island, New York, said Guy Hansman, 55, was “a wonderful person, a giving caring person.”
She said he married Monique and they had a total of four children.
“They’ve been together since they were about 15 years old,” Julie Hansman said. “He was a family man.”
Julie Hansman said Harper was smart, entertaining and “a little goofball.”
“She was just a normal little girl,” Julie Hansman said. “She was a beautiful little child.”
Police said Harper called 911 about 12:24 p.m. Monday, bringing law-enforcement personnel to the active shooter scene near Southport Middle School.
“She had her whole life ahead of her,” Julie Hansman said.
Julie Hansman said Guy Hansman was a manager at Winn-Dixie for 27 years.
Erick Thompson, 48, said he worked at Winn-Dixie from 2010 to 2012 with Guy Hansman. Much of that time Thompson was a meat manager in a Port Salerno location.
“He was a hardworking manager. He took pride in the job and pride in his store and his employees,” Thompson said. “He was very family-oriented. Always had pictures of the family on his desk.”
Thompson said Guy Hansman also worked at a Winn-Dixie location in Hobe Sound, and donated to a food bank and charities. He said Guy Hansman enjoyed sports and going on cruises and to concerts.
Julie Hansman said Guy Hansman, one of several siblings, liked fishing, boating and jet-skiing. He was born in Long Island and moved to South Florida in the 1970s. His father at one point was a horse jockey, and they came to Port St. Lucie around 1990.
Julie Hansman said the family is in shock.
“This monster took everything away from them and from us,” she said. “We can’t believe that such a thing could happen over an animal.”
On March 4, animal control officers went to the Hansman and Delserro homes for a dog bite involving the Delserro dog, a bull mastiff named Roxy.
“The adult female victim reported she was attacked and bitten by the suspect’s dog, which led to a dangerous dog hearing,” police stated.
Sandra Delserro was named in a “dangerous animal citation” that came with a $505 fine, records show. Sandra Delserro and Ronald Delserro are the listed owners of the home.
On July 1, animal-control officers gave Ronald Delserro “final declaration paperwork indicating … Roxy would be deemed dangerous,” police stated.
Julie Hansman said Guy Hansman wasn’t unreasonable, and also had pets. She said they aren’t the type of people who would want someone to have to get rid of an animal they loved.
“I do not understand what was in this man’s mind or in his heart, if he had a heart,” Julie Hansman said. “How do you shoot a child? How do you kill a baby?”
Julie Hansman said she hasn’t been able to speak to Monique Hansman after the incident. She wonders about attending funeral services with COVID-19.
“Can we even come there? Do we have to quarantine?” Julie Hansman wondered. “What are the guidelines?”
She said her husband last spoke to Guy Hansman in May.
“The family will never recover from this,” Julie Hansman said. “They’ll never be over this.”
