D’Jon Antone: Police Arrest Eddie Hassell’s Murder Suspect

Police have arrested suspect D’Jon Antone, 18, for the murder of Eddie Hassell, who starred on NBC’s Surfaces and Lifetime’s Devious Maids. Hassell was shot and killed in Texas on November 1, in what the police described on Thursday as a “random robbery” that turned deadly.

The man, D’Jon Antone, was arrested “without incident” on Wednesday by the U.S. Marshals Service and the Grand Prairie Police Department, the department said. He is being held on a capital murder charge, with bail set at $500,000.

It was not immediately clear whether Mr. Antone had a lawyer. His relatives could not immediately be reached for comment, and a spokeswoman for the Tarrant County District Attorney’s Office said she had no additional information.

Mr. Hassell, 30, was best known for his roles on the NBC show “Surface” and in the 2010 movie “The Kids Are All Right.” He was shot outside his girlfriend’s apartment in Grand Prairie, a Dallas suburb, around 1 a.m., according to his representative, Alan Mills. The actor was shot in the abdomen and taken to a nearby hospital, where he died, Mr. Mills said.

 Hassell was found by police suffering from a gunshot wound and was taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead, the Houston news station reported.


Mr. Hassell, who lived in Waco, Texas, appeared in “Surface,” a sci-fi show about “a new, and often dangerous, species of sea life” that starred the actress Lake Bell and aired in 2005 and 2006, according to IMDb.

He played the pill-snorting teenager Clay in “The Kids Are All Right,” and in the 2013 movie “Jobs,” Mr. Hassell played Chris Espinosa, who built circuit boards for a neighbor named Steve Jobs.

Mr. Hassell’s family could not be reached for comment on Thursday.
