“General Hospital” actor Johnny Wactor has died after being shot during a robbery attempt in downtown Los Angeles. He was 37.

Wactor’s mother, Scarlett, told TMZ that he was killed early Saturday morning after he and a colleague allegedly caught three suspects trying to steal a catalytic converter from his car.

The actor was fatally shot when he confronted them, even though authorities told his mother that he did not put up a fight.

KTLA reported LAPD officers responded to the area of Pico Boulevard and Hope Street around 3:25 a.m. on Saturday.

When they arrived at the scene, they found a man suffering from a gunshot wound. Wactor was later pronounced dead at a local hospital.

On Sunday, his talent agent David Shaul shared a statement on his death, telling Variety, “Johnny Wactor was spectacular human being. Not just a talented actor who was committed to his craft but a real moral example to everyone who knew him.

“Standing for hard work, tenacity and a never give up attitude. In the highs and lows of a challenging profession he always kept his chin up and kept striving for the best he could be. Our time with Johnny was a privilege we would wish on everyone. He would literally give you the shirt off his back. After over a decade together, he will leave a hole in our hearts forever.”

According to IMDb, Wactor had appeared as Brando Corbin in 164 episodes of “General Hospital” between 2020 and 2022. 

He also made appearances in “Station 19,” “Criminal Minds” and “Westworld.”

Per TMZ, Johnny is survived by his mother and his brothers, Lance and Grant.
