On Sunday, November 1, 2020, actor Eddie Hassell was killed in a suspected carjacking incident. This week, the Grand Prairie Police Department revealed that they arrested a suspect in relation to the case.


At around 1:50 a.m. on Sunday the Grand Prairie Police responded to a report of a shooting. When they arrived in the 3000 block of West Bardin Road, they found Eddie Hassell, 30, with gunshot wounds.

The police officers responded by giving him first aid before he was transported to a hospital in the area. Sadly, the “Surface” star was pronounced as deceased at the Texas hospital.

The Grand Prairie Police shared, at the time, that they were investigating the motive behind the shooting. Detectives also confirmed that a vehicle was taken from the scene but it was recovered later.

On Wednesday, November 4, 2020, the police gave an update on the case via Facebook. They revealed that the Grand Prairie Police for Capital Murder and the US Marshal Service North Texas Fugitive Task Force have arrested a suspect.


D’Jon Antone, 18, was arrested without any incidences and he’s being held at the Grand Prairie Detention Center. The teenager’s bond was set at $500,000.00, and his mug shot was included in the post.

The Grand Prairie Detectives determined that the “offense was a random robbery by the suspect.” They also reported that Antone was actually not a resident of the City of Grand Prairie.


According to the police, Antone’s case will be referred to the Tarrant County District Attorney’s Office. It was initially reported by Hassell’s manager that he was discovered shot in the stomach over the weekend.

The incident occurred outside “The Kids are All Right” actor’s girlfriend, Elizabeth Martin’s apartment. She was actually inside her residence when her boyfriend was shot but she didn’t see the shooter.


Besides his roles on NBC’s “Surface” and the film, "The Kids Are All Right," Hassell also starred in "Devious Maids." In 2011, "The Kids Are All Right" actually earned a best picture nomination at the Oscar Awards.

The late actor’s other television show appearances include "Jimmy Kimmel Live!," "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip,” "'Til Death," "Oliver Beene," "Southland," "Joan of Arcadia," "Bones," and "Longmire."

Some fans might also recognize Hassell for his roles in films like "The Family Tree," "2012," "Jobs," "House of Dust," "Family Weekend," "Bomb City," and "Warrior Road." “Bomb City,” actually came out in 2017.

The movie won the audience award for best narrative feature at the Dallas International Film Festival. The late star’s most recent acting credit was in the same year for the film "Oh Lucy!"
