Chicago police commander killed assisting on call

Chicago police commander killed in the line of duty

Commander Paul Bauer, 53, was struck multiple times and died from his wounds at a hospital.

The 53-year-old Bauer, wearing his police uniform, was in his auto after having lunch near the James R. Thompson Center, a downtown government building, when he heard the call, police said Wednesday.

Officers later apprehended the suspect who is a four-time felon with an arrest record that goes back to 1994.

He is survived by his wife and 13-year-old daughter.

A Chicago Police officer speaks a with a pedestrian at the scene where an on-duty officer was shot while assisting a tactical team at a state government office building, February 13, 2018, in Chicago.

"I think now it's important that we focus on Commander Paul Bauer's legacy, and what he meant to the city of Chicago", Johnson said.

Less than three months after those comments, Bauer is dead, allegedly from a repeat offender's bullets.

Hours later, a procession was organized, where Bauer's fellow officers marched with blue lights as the body was brought to the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office.

Johnson and Mayor Rahm Emanuel both visited the station Tuesday night for an emotional roll call with the men and women reporting for their first shift without their beloved commander. Charlie Branda, the founder of Art on Sedgwick School in Chicago, who knew Bauer from one of his meetings, said it was hard to believe that the commander was no more.

The shooter is in custody and the weapon was recovered, Johnson said.

"We're not talking about the guy who stole a loaf of bread from the store to feed his family", he said in November 2017, according to the Loop North News. After they fell down the stairs, seven gunshots could be heard on video police obtained from the scene. We're talking about career robbers, burglars, drug dealers. He arrived in Chicago around 7 p.m. and headed straight to a meeting with Johnson, the mayor's staff said. His 32 years as a Chicago police officer included leading the department's Mounted Patrol Unit. "Commander Bauer's intuition and understanding of the complexities of policing, combined with his open and honest approach in reporting on the issues faced in the district, helped better combat the challenges faced on the streets".

"Maybe I'm jaded", he told Loop North News, according to the Tribune.

Chicago's continuing battle with criminal violence is illustrated by the fact he was not the only shooting victim in the long-suffering city on Tuesday.
