Details are scarce and there is much speculation. We here at the Beet feel like we can draw our own conclusions as well. But here’s what we know for sure.

Johnny Wactor, a long time veteran of TV soap General Hospital, was shot and killed Saturday in a Los Angeles when he confronted thieves breaking into his car, according to TMZ. He was 37.    

Wactor’s mother Scarlett said that her son was leaving his job at a rooftop bar with a co-worker in the early hours of Saturday morning when he saw three men appearing to steal his catalytic converter.

Johnny, Scarlett said, thought that his vehicle was getting towed and tried to approach them to get further details.

One of the suspects was wearing a mask. When he heard Wactor, he looked up and then shot him, she told ABC7.
