A GoFundMe campaign for former “General Hospital” star Johnny Wactor has raised over $36,000. The crowdfunding initiative was reportedly launched to render financial assistance to the late actor’s family in the wake of his violent death.

37-year-old Johnny Wactor was killed on Saturday, May 25, while attempting to stop a robbery in L.A. He portrayed Brando Corbin on the ABC soap “General Hospital” between 2020 and 2022.

According to reports, on early Saturday morning, Wactor was finishing a bartending shift in Downtown Los Angeles and walking toward his vehicle with a female coworker when he encountered three suspects trying to steal a catalytic converter from his car.

Wactor’s brother Grant told Daily Mail that when the late actor encountered the thieves, he “thought his truck was being towed.”

Grant added “So he said something to the guys, like, ‘Hey, are you towing?'” Once he turned around, he saw what was happening, and he put his coworker behind him. And that’s when they shot him.”

While the suspects fled the scene, Wactor was reportedly rushed to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
