Man shot was visiting band's lighting designer

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - A man who was shot and killed after entering a home in New Orleans was a Colorado lighting designer who had been touring with the band Leftover Salmon.

New Orleans police have said a homeowner, fearing for his life, shot a man who had entered his home Sunday. The Times-Picayune reports coroner's officials identified the man as 40-year-old Joe Cahill, of Boulder, Colo. The Daily Camera reports Cahill was a lighting designer in Boulder.

The Daily Camera reports that after a Leftover Salmon show Saturday in New Orleans, most of the band and crew returned home, but Cahill planned to take in the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.
