Cahill was the house lighting director at The Fox Theatre, as well as the Boulder Theatre. He also toured as lighting designer for Leftover Salmon. Cahill was killed in New Orleans on April 28 after being shot by a homeowner who claimed that he ran into his residence and began fighting with people. Police had stopped Cahill in the street prior to the incident, but he allegedly pushed one of them and ran away. No charges have been filed at this time. Cahill was 40 years old.
