Gen­er­al Hos­pi­tal actor John­ny Wac­tor, 37, was killed in a trag­ic inci­dent on Sat­ur­day while try­ing to shield a female co-work­er from armed car thieves in Los Angeles. 

Wac­tor had been walk­ing the woman to her car after their shift at a down­town rooftop bar when they came across three masked men attempt­ing to steal his cat­alyt­ic converter.

Believ­ing the men were tow­ing his vehi­cle, Wac­tor approached them to inter­vene. When he real­ized they were rob­bers, he put him­self between the woman and the armed sus­pects. One of the thieves then shot Wac­tor in the chest, fatal­ly wound­ing him. The three assailants then fled the scene.

Wac­tor’s younger broth­er Grant con­firmed the heart­break­ing details, stat­ing that his sib­ling was killed while act­ing as a “south­ern gen­tle­man” and pro­tect­ing his co-work­er. Grant said Wac­tor’s final act of brav­ery did not sur­prise him, as the broth­ers were raised to always look out for women.

The 37-year-old actor, who appeared in 164 episodes of Gen­er­al Hos­pi­tal from 2020 to 2022, was rushed to a near­by hos­pi­tal but could not be saved. His grand­moth­er Bar­bara described the loss as “sense­less” and not­ed that Wac­tor was sim­ply try­ing to walk his co-work­er to her car when the trag­ic inci­dent occurred.

Wac­tor’s cast­mates from Gen­er­al Hos­pi­tal have been dev­as­tat­ed by the news, with co-star Per­ry Shen call­ing him a “beau­ti­ful, beau­ti­ful soul” and Jon Lind­strom lament­ing that his “loved ones must feel” an immea­sur­able loss.

The sus­pects respon­si­ble for Wac­tor’s mur­der remain at large, and the Los Ange­les Police Depart­ment con­tin­ues to inves­ti­gate the incident.
