Bauer, who was downtown leaving training session, was shot after trying to help stop a man being pursued by tactical officers.

Cmdr. Paul Bauer was shot multiple times Tuesday afternoon after he spotted a man matching the radio description of an armed suspect, the city's police superintendent said.

The Chicago Tribune reports that the shooter was eventually apprehended and was wearing a protective vest.

According to the Department of Corrections, he was sentenced to prison in 1999 for armed robbery and after he was released, he was arrested again and sentenced to prison for possession of a firearm with a defaced serial number.

Bauer leaves behind a wife and a 13-year-old daughter.

Your days of Instagram creeping may soon be over
It's a little less obvious than Snapchat's notification, but it still has users divided over the usefulness of the feature. Not everyone has reacted to this new test feature just yet; but it looks like it will be business as usual for Instagram.

A person has been charged in the shooting death of a Chicago Police officer who was killed Tuesday during a police chase.

Bauer was rushed to Northwestern Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Gov. Bruce Rauner has directed all entities governed by the Illinois Flag Display Act to fly both the United States and Illinois state flags at half-staff in remembrance of Chicago Police Commander Paul R. Bauer.

"I just ask the citizens of this city to keep the Bauer family in their prayers", Johnson said.

A procession of law enforcement vehicles took Bauer's body to the medical examiner's office. There was a physical confrontation and the man ran away. "There is a lot of mistrust with the Police Department", Bauer said, according to the newspaper.

Steve Kerr disrespects Suns by letting players coach
Rather than going through his usual work coaching the team, he chose to allow his players to do the work for him. They lost back-to-back games, three of four and four of 10 - all for the first time during the 2017-18 campaign.

Bauer spent the last two years of his 31-year career commanding the 18th District, spanning the Streeterville, River North, Lincoln Park, Old Town, Goose Island, and Gold Coast neighborhoods.

A photographic memorial for Chicago Police Cmdr. Witnesses told the Chicago Tribune that they heard gunshots, saw people running, and saw a man being taken into custody. He arrived in Chicago around 7 p.m. and headed straight to a meeting with Johnson, the mayor's staff said.

"It's a hard day for us", Johnson told a news conference, fighting back tears. These are all crimes against the community.

"There was no communication from him on the radio informing dispatch that he was in pursuit of the offender or that he was even on scene, so they initially thought it was an off-duty officer until someone recognized him", spokesman Anthony Guglielmi wrote in an email.
