Hearing set for suspect in Chicago police commander's death

Hearing set for suspect in Chicago police commander's death

The man accused of killing Chicago Police Commander Paul Bauer was denied bond in court Thursday. He was planning to meet later with aldermen at City Hall to discuss his efforts to quell violence in his Near North District. The 44-year-old had been on the run from police Tuesday when Commander Paul Bauer tried to help tactical officers make a street stop on him. Legghette matched the description of a suspect running in a long, fur-lined coat, police said. Someone in a auto had fired at a vehicle traveling in the opposite direction, but no one was hit.

Officers said Bauer's cousin was Martin Darcy, a Chicago police officer who was shot and killed in 1982. A chase between the two ended up at the Thompson Center, and prosecutors said that's when Legghette fired seven shots, hitting Bauer six times in the head, neck, back, torso and wrist.

"In a matter of seconds, at the hand of one individual who was wearing body armor and armed with a semi-automatic extended-clip firearm, this department didn't just lose an exemplary police officer, the city lost a piece of itself, and a family lost a loving father and husband", Johnson said Wednesday.

Cook County Judge Mary Marubio ordered Legghette held without bail. "My heart breaks for his 13-year-old daughter and his wife".

Area residents remembered Bauer as always having time for them, routinely attending community meetings to hear concerns, the Chicago Tribune reported. He was outspoken in his views that the criminal justice system isn't doing enough to lock up repeat offenders.

News stories say he played high-school basketball for Dunbar Vocational, with 23 points and eight rebounds attributed to him in one game in 1991.
