Eddie Hassell Murder News: D’Jon Antone Arrested In Case
A suspect has been arrested three days after actor Eddie Hassell was shot to death in Grand Prairie, Texas. The suspect, identified as 18-year-old D’Jon Antone, is being held with a $500,000 bail.
Hassell was shot as part of a carjacking on Sunday, and was found by police at around 2 a.m. alive but suffering from gunshot wounds. He died upon reaching the hospital. Though Hassel was shot outside of his girlfriend’s Texas apartment, she did not witness the assailant.
Antone was arrested Wednesday by the United States Marshal Service North Texas Fugitive Task Force and Grand Prairie Police on a charge of capital murder. Grand Prairie detectives have said that his robbery of Hassell was at random, and he is not a resident of the city.
An attorney for Antone could not be immediately identified to speak on his behalf, and his case will be referred to the Tarrant County District Attorney’s Office.
