Hassell, best known for his roles on the TV show Surface and the movie The Kids Are All Right, died from his wounds in hospital last Sunday aged 30.
The police have suggested the incident was a robbery which went wrong.
Hassell was shot outside his girlfriend’s apartment in the Dallas suburb, at around 01:00 on Sunday, according to his representative.
“Grand Prairie Detectives determined the offence was a random robbery by the suspect, who was not a resident of the City of Grand Prairie,” they said in a statement.
