    The late Johnny Wactor was honoured at the end of Tuesday night's (11.06.24) episode of 'General Hospital'

    The actor - who played Brando Corbin on the ABC soap opera from 2020 to 2022 - was fatally shot last month aged 37 during a "robbery gone wrong" after he confronted three men apparently tampering with his vehicle


    It was confirmed that his death was ruled as a homicide.

    And at the end of the episode, his picture was shown with the tribute: "In Loving Memory Of Johnny Wactor."

    Upon the tragic news, the cast and crew released a touching statement: "The entire General Hospital family is heartbroken to hear of Johnny Wactor's untimely passing. He was truly one of a kind and a pleasure to work with each and every day. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his loved ones during this difficult time."

    In documents obtained by the outlet, it was noted that "no other significant factors" contributed to his death, and the death certificate revealed that his remains were cremated and transferred to his mother Scarlett in South Carolina.

    After his death, Jonny's family revealed he saved his co-worker's life when he was shot and killed, in a description that matches that of an incident shared by the Los Angeles Police Department.

    His brother Grant told the MailOnline: "We're Southern, born and raised, and we would never let a female walk to their car by herself. We're Southern, born and raised, and we would never let a female walk to their car by herself.

    "He came across them and he thought his truck was being towed. 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. That's when they shot him."

    Scarlett initially explained to TMZ that Johnny was with a colleague when they saw three men "messing with Johnny's car" and that the suspects "allegedly tried to steal a catalytic converter".

    She noted that Johnny "did not try to stop" the alleged suspects in their actions, and that even though paramedics rushed to the scene shortly after the shooting, he was pronounced dead in hospital.
