Chicago's police chief says a high-ranking member of the department has died after being shot at a state government building downtown.

Bauer was immediately transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead. 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. He said a suspect was taken into custody and a gun recovered. Officers Anthony Morelli, 54, and Eric Joering, 39, were shot and killed by a man, police say, shouldn't have been able to have a gun due to felony convictions.

Fox 32 Chicago reported the commander was shot in a stairwell of the Thompson Center in the city's downtown business center.
