Vigil mourns theater manager slain in holdup try
More than 100 people gathered for a vigil Thursday night to remember Mark Douglas Buhaug. The Marquee Cinema manager was shot and killed Oct. 24.Posted — Updated
Mark Douglas Buhaug, 48, was fatally shot Oct. 24 during a robbery attempt at the Marquee Cinema in the Wakefield Commons shopping center, 10600 Common Oaks Drive.
"When I found out that it was him that got shot and that he passed away, it was pretty tough,” Hayworth said.
Friends at the vigil, held outside the theater, say Buhaug was sitting inside the box office when he was shot.
Stiles had worked with Buhaug at the theater. He said Friday night’s shooting was not the first time the cinema has been targeted.
Stiles says the men shot out two windows in his car. A few days later, Stiles says, there was another robbery attempt at the theater, and he quit working there.
"He would do anything for you. (He) was excellent to work with. He touched on people,” Stiles said of Buhaug.
Theater employees said Zilinski worked at the theater and lived with Bimbo, whom neighbors said was his stepfather.
