DAILYKENN.com -- Blue lives matter.
Chicago police Cmdr. Paul Bauer was brutally murdered by Shomari Legghette. Bauer was 53-years-old.
Reports say Legghette, 46, was dressed in body armor the day he gunned down Bauer. He was also armed with a gun and carrying 27 bullets in an extended magazine. Reports say he was a “walking, talking felony,” who had Bauer “outsized, outmuscled and certainly outgunned.”
It appears Legghette was hunting ... for people. And it appears Bauer became his prey.
Legghette was convicted of "two counts of first-degree murder, two counts of first-degree murder of a peace officer and two counts of armed violence for the Feb. 13, 2018 shooting."
According to news.wttw.com ▼
Chicago police officers were patrolling Lower Wacker Drive on Feb. 13, 2018 when they spotted Legghette, who appeared to be urinating, around 1:30 p.m. and approached him to “conduct a field interview,” according to prosecutors. As they did so, Legghette fled and officers put out a description of him over the police radio.
Bauer, who was nearby, heard that description, spotted Legghette and took off after him on foot, pursuing him to a stairwell near the Thompson Center. After reaching him, both men descended the stairs, and following a struggle on a lower landing, Legghette allegedly shot Bauer six times, killing the 31-year police department veteran.
