A man was indicted Wednesday by a Tarrant County grand jury in the shooting death of actor Eddie Hassell.

Grand Prairie police say Hassell, 30, was the victim of a random robbery before being shot and killed by the suspect on Nov. 1, 2020.

Police found Hassell with gunshot wounds and he died at the hospital.

Detectives said a car that was taken from the scene was later recovered.

Hassell, who was from Waco, played the role of Clay in the 2010 Oscar-nominated film "The Kids Are All Right," and Phil Nance on the NBC TV show “Surface.”
