Commander Paul Bauer was shot and killed while attempting to arrest a subject who had just run from other officers near the James R. Thompson Center, a state government office building.
Other officers had attempted to conduct a subject stop on the man in connection with a shooting that had occurred several days earlier. The subject fled from the officers. Commander Bauer, who was in the area, observed the subject at the government building and attempted to stop him in a stairwell. The subject opened fire, killing Commander Bauer.
The subject was taken into custody moments later.
Commander Bauer had served with the Chicago Police Department for 32 years. He is survived by his wife and daughter.
