Police arrested a man on Wednesday who is suspected of murdering actor Eddie Hassell in a robbery on Nov. 1.

D’Jon Antone, 18, was arrested without incident by a fugitive task force in North Texas and police in Grand Prairie, Tex., for capital murder, according to the Grand Prairie Police Department.

Antone is being held at the Grand Prairie Detention Center with a bond set at $500,000. Detectives ruled that the robbery was random and Antone is not a resident of Grand Prairie. The case is being referred to the Tarrant County District Attorney’s office.

Hassell, 30, was killed on Nov. 1 after being shot several times on the 3000 block of West Bardin Road in Grand Prairie. Police officers responded to a report of a shooting around 1:50 a.m., located Hassell and administered first aid. He was then transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The incident is still under investigation by police.

Hassell was born on July 16, 1990, in Corsicana, Tex. He held several small film and TV roles throughout the 2000s and 2010s, most notably as Clay in the 2010 film “The Kids Are All Right,” which also starred Julianne Moore and Mark Ruffalo. The film earned a nomination for best picture at the Academy Awards in 2011. He also played Phil Nance on NBC’s sci-fi series “Surface,” alongside Leighton Meester and Lake Bell; and appeared on “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip,” “Oliver Beene,” “Joan of Arcadia,” “‘Til Death,” “Southland,” “Bones,” “Devious Maids” and “Longmire.”

His family is raising money for memorial services on GoFundMe.
