RIP brother.

quote:
At the beginning of the chase, an officer is heard saying over the radio that he had tried to stop the suspect but he took off running. "He took off, he was running from me, we just had a shooting the other day," the officer radioed.

He described the suspect as wearing a long black coat with a fur collar and last seen running south on Dearborn Street. Within a minute, another officer said he saw the man. He told a dispatcher he was near Clark and Lake streets, “State of Illinois building towards City Hall.”

It was the last thing heard from the officer. The dispatcher asked, repeatedly, over the course of more than three minutes for the officer to come back on the air. There was no response.

The first officer came back on the air and said, “Don’t anybody get hurt. We just wanted to do a street stop on him and he took off on me. But he was in the area where we’ve had a lot of narcotics sales and a shooting on Saturday.”

The dispatcher replied, "I understand, but somebody else is following him and we want to make sure we get him help.”

A different officer came on the air and said they found the suspect and had him in handcuffs. They said the suspect had a gun on him.

The original officer came back on the air reporting a person had been shot. “We have a person shot in the stairwell. Possibly related to the guy we were chasing at the State of Illinois building.”

The dispatcher said, “OK, is that an off-duty PO (police officer)?”

“There’s a radio laying (cq) next to him. Oh s---. Squad, I need somebody over here ASAP. It is.”

Dispatcher: “We have a 10-1, we have an off-duty shot. We have units on the scene.”

I am in shock. This man was my Commander. Not only was he a great boss, but was a great man. He went out of his way to talk to you. If you had problems of any sort, he would go above and beyond to help. He was extremely well liked and easily one of the best bosses I've had in all my years on this job.

I just had a lengthy conversation with him about a Burglary pattern that was recently cleared up by our tact team. He went out of his way, which is almost all of the time, to thank us all about the job we were doing and how he truly appreciated all that we do.

He will be sorely missed. Prayers for his family. Frown

I’m watching the local coverage now (WGN); there is a huge procession of police vehicles following the ambulance from the hospital to the medical examiners in the west loop. Gut-wrenching...

Sad news. My sincere condolences to my SIGforum CPD friends, both the ones I have met in person, and those I have not. When tragedy strikes close to home, it is always more deeply felt.

I am so sorry for your loss. Those kind of bosses are few and far between in any profession, which is a shame. It is always the good ones that are lost too soon it seems.

Im in the District just south of 018. In the district where he was shot.
It's a sad day for us. As Klusk said, Commander B was just a truly great person, and a phenomenal boss to work for.

Rest In Peace

RIP Commander Bauer. Judging from the comments above, I wonder if he was too kind and trusting. Perp got off multiple rounds, perhaps 5 from what a bystander stated.

Terrible. Sorry to you guys that knew him. Sounds like a great man.

Was the suspect apprehended the one who shot him?
