  • Chicago Police Officer Shot, Killed After Responding to Chase While Off Duty

Bauer, a 31-year-veteran who had been in the area for training and had a meeting with aldermen scheduled later, confronted the man, according to police officials and other sources.

18th police district commander Paul Bauer was killed on Tuesday afternoon, shot at James R. Thompson Center in the Loop by a man who was running from police.

Bauer had identified himself as a police officer and was trying to detain the suspect when they got into a fight and fell down a stairwell that led to a locked underground walkway, an official told The AP.

Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told the Associated Press the suspect will also face charges for possession of narcotics and illegal firearm possession by a felon.

The suspect was armed with a semi-automatic weapon and was wearing a bullet-proof vest. He wanted perception. When you saw him, he didn't want to be the enemy. "He wife, daughter, family, the entire law enforcement community are in our prayers as they mourn this tragic loss".

"The idea that Paul would act so unselfishly and would sacrifice his own safety for the safety of the people of Chicago and his fellow officers comes as no surprise to those of us who knew him", the statement read.

Police captured the man a short time later, and a gun was recovered at the scene, he said.

Because he ran toward danger and not away from it, Bauer became the first Chicago police officer shot and killed in the line of duty since 2011, when Officer Clifton Lewis was slain during an armed robbery at a convenience store. Paul Bauer's wake will be held Friday, with a funeral on Saturday. Instead, he will be buried after his final call on February 20. He immediately fled on foot which was called out by the officers over the police radio.
