Chicago police Cmdr. Paul Bauer shot to death at Thompson Center in Loop

A high-ranking Chicago police officer was shot to death at the Thompson Center on Tuesday afternoon while assisting a tactical team that was chasing a person who was acting suspiciously, police said.

Cmdr. Paul Bauer of the Near North District was shot several times a little before 2 p.m., according to police Superintendent Eddie Johnson. He said a suspect was taken into custody and a gun recovered.

“It’s a difficult day for us, but we’ll get through it,” Johnson told reporters outside Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where Bauer had been taken.

Bauer, 53, joined the department in 1986 and worked all across the city over his career — from the South Side to the specialized mounted patrol unit to his current position as commander of the busy and high-profile Near North District.
