A high-ranking police officer was killed in the line of duty Tuesday while assisting a tactical team chase down a suspect near the Thompson Center, Chicago.

Bauer was in plain clothes attire when he was shot. Bauer was shot several times during the confrontation and died at the hospital.

The suspected shooter, who hasn't been identified, was arrested. They said the suspect had a gun on him. Eddie Johnson of Chicago Police Department delivered the news of Bauer's death outside the hospital. "I ask every Chicagoan to keep his family in their thoughts and prayers", he added.

Patrol officers had approached a man in the street last afternoon who was described as acting suspiciously.

Gov. Bruce Rauner initially offered thoughts and prayers to "the family and colleagues of the officer tragically lost in a shooting at the Thompson Center today".

An officer made initial contact with the suspect but the person fled. When Bauer confronted the suspect, he opened fire.

"Don't anybody get hurt", the first officer said again, before turning his or her attention to the dispatcher. She said she could not tell if either was an officer.

Then the radio fell silent. He really tried to get the officers to communicate and not to rush to judgment.
