IN MEMORIAM

Former “General Hospital” star Johnny Wactor has died.

The 37-year-old actor was shot and killed on Saturday, May 25 in downtown Los Angeles after three unidentified suspects were allegedly seen trying to steal a catalytic converter from his car, Wactor’s mother, Scarlett, told TMZ.

According to the outlet, Wactor was with a coworker early Saturday morning “when they saw three men messing with Johnny’s car.” While Johnny did not interfere in the theft, either by trying to fight or stop them, “the men shot him anyway before taking off.”

Police reports indicate paramedics rushed to the scene just after 3:00 a.m. PT. Sadly, Wactor was pronounced dead at the hospital.

At present, police have not shared a description of the armed suspects, but Wactor’s mother hopes they’ll be found quickly.

Joining the “General Hospital” cast in January 2020 as Brando Corbin, Wactor exited the series in September 2022 after the character was written out.

Wactor is survived by his mother and younger brothers, Lance and Grant.
