Former ‘General Hospital’ actor Johnny Wactor was shot dead in Los Angeles

Former “General Hospital” actor Johnny Wactor was fatally shot in downtown Los Angeles while interrupting a burglar Saturday, according to his agent and CNN affiliate KABC.

The actor, who played Brando Corbin on the hospital soap opera, was shot as he left work early Saturday morning, his mother told KABC,

In a statement to CNN, Wactor’s agent David Shaul described him as a wonderful human being, “not just a talented actor committed to his craft but a true moral example to all who knew him.”

Wactor represents hard work and perseverance, and striving to be the best, Shaul said. “Our time with Johnny was a privilege we wish everyone. He will literally give you the shirt off his back. After more than a decade together, he will leave a hole in our hearts forever.”

Wactor’s mother, Scarlett Wactor, spoke to CNN affiliate KABC and confirmed his death.

He said his son had been walking with one of his colleagues after work at a rooftop bar in the city center when he saw what he thought was someone working on a car.

Her son initially thought his car was towed, and he approached the person to ask, Scarlett Wactor told KABC. Instead, the suspect looked up and opened fire, he added.

The shooting happened around 3:25 a.m. PT Saturday, Los Angeles Police Department Officer Tony Im told CNN.

Three men tried to steal the catalytic converter when the victim interrupted them, Im said. One of the suspects pulled out a gun and shot the victim before the man drove away in a vehicle.

The victim was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead, said Im.

The LAPD has not confirmed the victim is Wactor.

Wactor stars on “General Hospital” as Brando Corbin from 2020 to 2022, according to IMDB. Other acting credits include “Criminal Minds” and “Siberia.”
