Commander Paul Bauer, a high ranking Chicago Police Commander, was shot and killed today while confronting a suspect near the Thompson Center in downtown Chicago, according to the Chicago Tribune. Bauer was shot multiple times, Johnson said. Eddie Johnson of Chicago Police Department delivered the news of Bauer's death outside the hospital. State troopers and Chicago Police officers arrived and took the suspect into custody.
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.
"He observed the offender", Johnson said.

Bauer, 53, joined the police force in 1986 and worked all over Chicago, the Tribune reported. ABC7 Chicago's I-Team learned the officer was shot twice in the head. The dispatcher asked, repeatedly, over the course of more than three minutes for the officer to come back on the air.
Commander Bauer's death prompted an outpouring of sympathy from elected officials, including Gov. Bruce Rauner of IL, who has an office near where the shooting occurred, and Mayor Rahm Emanuel of Chicago, who has faced pressure to reduce the city's high homicide rate. "He took off, he was running from me, we just had a shooting the other day", the officer radioed.
Bauer had been commander of the 18th police district since July 2016, when he was promoted from captain. No officer as high ranking as him has been killed since 1981 when Chicago's number two cop was murdered in a downtown bar. It wasn't immediately clear if the shooting occurred inside or outside the building.
