Police Commander Shot Dead in Downtown Chicago In Broad Daylight

A senior Chicago police commander was shot dead on Tuesday in a brazen early afternoon shooting that has even shocked a city where gun crime has become the norm. Commander Paul Bauer, 53, was shot multiple times by a man reported by the Chicago Tribune to be a four-time felon known to police who was wearing body armour at the time of the shooting around 2pm Tuesday.
