Chicago Police Commander Fatally Shot on Duty

She told the paper that she saw officers lead the shackled suspect away and put him in a squad auto, and then watched as emergency workers administered CPR to Bauer, who was lying on a stretcher, before he was put inside an ambulance and rushed to the hospital.

Authorities say the officer was assisting a tactical team at the time of the shooting.

He was rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead a little later.

There was a heavy police presence at the scene.

Johnson sent out an email to members of his department, according to the Chicago Tribune.

However, the confrontation quickly became fatal when the gunman opened fire and shot Bauer at least twice in the head.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel offered his condolences, too, calling Bauer's death 'a tragic reminder of the risky duty the men and women of our police department accept to ensure the safety of us all'.

Tactical officers originally approached the suspect because he was acting suspicious, but when they confronted him a fight broke out and the man ran, Johnson said.

Guglielmi did not have any other details about the shooting, the officer's name or the officer's condition.

An officer found Bauer shot in a stairwell after apprehending the suspect and recovering his firearm. Gugliemi said on Twitter the officer was shot by "an assailant".

"There's a radio laying next to him", the officer responded. Please take the time to keep his family in your thoughts and prayers.

"They actually had us locked in Walgreens", one person in the area said.

"I heard the gunshots go off, about five shots, and then the stairs there to the pedway, I think they have the guy cornered because they lock those doors down there", Janko said.

Commander Bauer is survived by his wife and daughter.
