Actor Johnny Wactor shot dead in Los Angeles

A long-time veteran of the TV soap, General Hospital, Johnny Wactor age 37, has been shot dead in a robbery that turned horribly wrong in Los Angeles.

“The actor mistook masked thieves stealing his car for tow truck drivers and intervened before they opened fire,” according to reports.

Wactor was said to be leaving his side job at a rooftop bar with a female colleague at around 3:25 am in the area of West Pico Boulevard and South Hope Street, when he saw the three men, believing he was being towed.

The Los Angeles police department said that one of the three men, all of whom were wearing masks, shot Wactor before fleeing in a separate vehicle.

Johnny Wactor is best known to the American public as Brando Corbin. That’s the role he played on the soap “General Hospital” from 2020 to 2022.

But he has also played smaller roles in other successful series. He made his debut in “Army Wives” in 2007. He has also appeared in “Criminal Minds”, “Westworld” and “NCIS”.

Paramedics got to the scene shortly after and took him to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The masked suspects remain at large and have yet to be identified or described.
