Slain Chicago police commander was department veteran

Chicago Police Officer Shot and Killed in Downtown

Superintendent Johnson said the police arrested a suspect and found a gun.

Bauer was in plain clothes attire when he was shot.

Cmdr. Paul Bauer, 53, went after a suspect who had an altercation with other officers and escaped, police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said.

The suspect was taken into custody, and his gun was recovered.

He was rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead a little later. Another officer then radioed that he'd just seen the suspect near the Thompson Center, according to the Chicago Tribune.

A police commander was fatally shot while responding to a call Tuesday in downtown Chicago, authorities said.

"I know there is a perception out there that there is this wall, a lot of mistrust in the Police Department", he said.

The incident occurred around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday afternoon at the IL state government office building at Clark and Randolph in Chicago's Loop. We will get through it.

The original officer came back on the air reporting a person had been shot. She said she could not tell if either was an officer. The officer was transported to Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

"There's a radio laying (sic) next to him". He had a wife and daughter, CBS 2's Dana Kozlov reports. Another witness said she saw a gurney coming up the stairs and saw paramedics performing chest compressions until the victim was taken into the ambulance. A number of marked and unmarked police and Chicago Fire Department vehicles, some of them with emergency lights flashing, were parked outside.

"They actually had us locked in Walgreens", one person in the area said.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and colleagues of the officer tragically lost in a shooting at the Thompson Center today", Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner said on Twitter.
