The Los Angeles Police Department is on the hunt for three suspects involved in this tragic incident. The entertainment world is in mourning after the shocking death of 'General Hospital' star Johnny Wactor.

A Night of Tragedy

The beloved actor, known for his magnetic presence and compassionate spirit, was senselessly killed in a confrontation with criminals attempting to steal a car part. Anita Joy, a close friend and co-worker, took to Instagram to share the harrowing details of Wactor's final moments, providing a voice for the injustice he faced.

After a night shift at Level 8 bar in downtown Los Angeles, Wactor and Joy found themselves in a nightmare scenario. Approaching their cars in the early hours of May 25, they stumbled upon a scene straight out of a crime drama - thieves attempting to hijack a car part. Wactor, ever the peacemaker, calmly confronted the men, only to be met with a fatal gunshot.

Joy's vivid recount of the moment Wactor was shot is chilling.

"We cautiously approached the men, questioning what they were doing, at first thinking the car was being towed," she wrote. "We were no threat and Johnny kept his cool as he always did, simply stating that it was his car and for them to leave. Hands open to his sides in peace."

"Johnny was between me and the man who shot him," she continued. "As I heard the shot ring into the night, he forcefully tumbled back into my arms. As I grabbed for him, I shouted ‘Hunny you ok?!’ And he only responded, ‘Nope! Shot!’ We toppled onto the street where I pushed my legs under him and tried to hold his body up while screaming for help and screaming at him to stay with me." 

The bar's security guard was crossing the street at the time and rushed over while dialing 911. 

A harrowing account

We tied my denim jacket around him to stop the bleeding and Bryan [the security guard] proceeded to try CPR on him."

"It was too close range, too extreme of a wound for him to survive it but my god, he fought to stay," she wrote. "I am utterly heartbroken and so very angry. My only peace is that I was with him and this didn’t happen to him alone – my only other peace will be seeing these awful men brought to justice."

"His energy was magnetic and pulled you in so effortlessly – you were safe with him," she wrote in her caption. "He treated everyone with love, respect, compassion and he really ‘saw’ you. He was beautiful, goofy as hell, full of work ethic and values."

"He called me ‘Anita Bonita’ and I hope the stamp of his voice saying that every time I saw him never leaves my memory," she added. "Just one look into his big blue eyes, followed by a big goofy grin, Johnny made you love him instantly. Absolutely one of the best men I’ve ever known."

Despite the immediate chaos and her desperate attempts to save him, Wactor's injuries were too severe. The quick response from a nearby security guard and emergency services couldn't turn the tide, leaving Joy and the 'General Hospital' community in despair.

The LAPD has released new details about the suspects, urging the public to come forward with any information. Wactor's death, ruled a homicide by gunshot wound, has sparked a fervent call for justice, with fans and colleagues rallying around Joy's heartfelt tribute.
