Friends and family of the late actor Johnny Wactor are calling for a reward to be established to catch whomever shot him, and plan a march to City Hall on Wednesday in his honor.

Wactor was shot and killed on May 25 at Pico & Hope St. in Los Angeles. The 37-year-old actor was walking back to his car with a co-worker after a bartending shift at Level 8 Restaurant & Lounge around around 3:15 a.m. He noticed some men tampering with his car, and when he confronted them, he was shot.

The suspects fled the scene and no arrests have been made.

Wactor’s family and friends intend to keep the incident alive.

“Unfortunately, what happened to Johnny can, and is likely to, happen again,” reads a news release from the group.

“Johnny’s family and friends are urging local community leaders to explore legislative and municipal actions that will hopefully not only lead to breakthroughs in Johnny’s case, but that will also help make the city that Johnny chose to call home safer,” the news release reads. “This should be important to us all.”

The group has called for a $25,000 reward to be implemented for information leading to the arrest of the suspects responsible for killing Wactor.
