Officers said that information led them to two people who have been arrested in connection to Hassel's death.

The active-duty military member was shot and killed outside of a home on Colfax Avenue near Delaware Avenue in St. Joseph Township in late December.

When investigators got there, they said they found 23-year-old Hassel with multiple gunshot wounds.

He was taken to a local hospital where he later died.

Authorities said Hassel was in the military and was home on leave visiting family over the holidays.
