Johnny Wactor, ‘General Hospital’ Actor, Killed During Theft Attempt


Johnny Wactor, an actor best known for his role as Brando Corbin in General Hospital, was tragically shot and killed during a suspected catalytic converter theft attempt in downtown Los Angeles. He was 37 years old. According to Wactor’s brother, he and a female co-worker were leaving work at a bar around 3:25 a.m. when they noticed his car had been lifted. They soon realized the individuals were not tow truck personnel. Wactor bravely positioned himself in front of his colleague and raised his hands in a non-confrontational manner. But despite his efforts to defuse the situation, he was shot, and later pronounced dead at a local hospital. No arrests have been made. (People)
