Photo Police officers guard the scene in downtown Chicago where an off-duty police commander was fatally shot while assisting a tactical team outside a state government office building. When they tried speak with the individual, a physical struggle ensued and the person escaped, Chicago Police Department Superintendent Eddie Johnson said during a news conference.
"Important clarification: CPD Commander Paul Bauer was on duty when he was murdered this afternoon".
He was off-duty when he went to assist tactical officers pursuing a fleeing suspect near the James R. Thompson Center shortly after 2 p.m. Tuesday.
Commander Bauer's death prompted an outpouring of sympathy from elected officials, including Gov. Bruce Rauner of IL, who has an office near where the shooting occurred, and Mayor Rahm Emanuel of Chicago, who has faced pressure to reduce the city's high homicide rate.
Gov. Bruce Rauner tweeted: "Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and colleagues of the officer tragically lost in a shooting at the Thompson Center today".
However, the confrontation quickly became fatal when the gunman opened fire and shot Bauer at least twice in the head.
Bauer, 53, joined the police force in 1986 and worked all over Chicago, the Tribune reported.
Police warned locals to get off the streets before shots were fired.
"There's a radio laying (sic) next to him". Gugliemi said on Twitter the officer was shot by "an assailant".

"They just seemed to be searching him and taking off articles of clothing", Mr. Rodriguez said. Then the ambulance came, about five minutes later they brought out a guy who was shot. He was on the stretcher, there was blood and they were doing (CPR).
He is survived by his wife and 13-year-old daughter. Many workers said they could not get back into the buildings.
