Tragedy struck the enter­tain­ment world as “Gen­er­al Hos­pi­tal” actor John­ny Wac­tor was fatal­ly shot in Los Ange­les. The 37-year-old actor con­front­ed a group of thieves attempt­ing to steal his car’s cat­alyt­ic con­vert­er ear­ly Sat­ur­day morning.

Accord­ing to Wac­tor’s fam­i­ly and law enforce­ment, Wac­tor did not resist the theft but was still shot by one of the sus­pects who fled the scene. Wac­tor was trans­port­ed to a hos­pi­tal but suc­cumbed to his injuries.

Wac­tor was best known for his role as Bran­do Corbin on “Gen­er­al Hos­pi­tal,” appear­ing in 164 episodes between 2020 and 2022. He also had cred­its in shows like “Siberia,” “Army Wives,” and “Crim­i­nal Minds.”

Trib­utes poured in from his “Gen­er­al Hos­pi­tal” co-stars. Jon Lind­strom described Wac­tor as “kind, unas­sum­ing, and always thought about oth­ers.” Nan­cy Lee Grahn called the shoot­ing “trag­ic and heartbreaking.”

Cat­alyt­ic con­vert­er thefts have surged nation­wide due to the high resale val­ue of pre­cious met­als with­in these car parts. Wac­tor’s death trag­i­cal­ly high­lights the dan­gers of this grow­ing crime.

The inves­ti­ga­tion into Wac­tor’s shoot­ing is ongo­ing. The “Gen­er­al Hos­pi­tal” fam­i­ly and his loved ones mourn the loss of a tal­ent­ed actor.
