Police Identify Fallen Richardson Officer & Accused Gunman
By CBS DFW | February 8, 2018

RICHARDSON (CBSDFW.COM) – Police have released the name of the Richardson police officer who was killed along with a civilian on Wednesday evening. Officer David Sherrard was shot after responding to a call about a disturbance at the Breckinridge Point Apartments, near Renner Road and North Star Road.

During a morning press conference Richardson police Chief Jimmy Spivey said when officers arrived they found the injured civilian and began rendering aid. “In the course of their investigation they were led to an apartment where they made an entry and immediately encountered gunfire.” The Chief said Officer Sherrard fell back out of the apartment and was immediately helped by other officers.

After allegedly shooting Officer Sherrard, accused gunman Brandon De McCall barricaded himself inside one of the apartments for more than four hours. The wounded 37-year-old officer was rushed to Medical City Plano but died from his injuries. He had been shot in the neck.

Early Thursday morning police also identified the civilian victim killed as Rene Gamez. Police say the 30-year-old lived in the apartment where McCall held police at bay and that he knew the accused gunman. The exact relationship between the two men, if any, isn’t known.

Officer David Sherrard was a 14-year veteran with the department and was married with two daughters. A memorial for the officer has been started on a cruiser parked outside RPD headquarters and the flag there has been lowered to half-staff.

I know, Showpoodles. :(

Not counting the police officers shot who survived this week.

IDK what is happening, but I don't want to be back in this thread again for a long time.

This is surreal. Thirty-one years on the job, he was not a street cop. He was off-duty across the street at City Hall when he heard the police scanner and description of the guy who ran from police. When Bauer found and approached the suspect, he was shot twice in the head. He leaves behind a wife and young daughter. :(

Chicago police Cmdr. Paul Bauer shot to death at Thompson Center in Loop
By Chicago Tribune | February 13, 2018


Image

A high-ranking Chicago police officer was shot to death at the Thompson Center on Tuesday afternoon while assisting a tactical team that was chasing a person who was acting suspiciously, police said.

Cmdr. Paul Bauer of the Near North District was shot several times a little before 2 p.m., according to police Superintendent Eddie Johnson. He said a suspect was taken into custody and a gun recovered.

Bauer, 53, joined the department in 1986 and worked all across the city over his career — from the South Side to the specialized mounted patrol unit to his current position as commander of the busy and high-profile Near North District.

Bauer was shot after a man started running from tactical officers who had tried to stop him for questioning, according to Johnson. The officers radioed a description that the commander heard, he said. Bauer, at the Thompson Center for a training session, confronted the suspect, who opened fire.

Police radio traffic caught the moments before the shooting, including a warning from one of the pursuing officers, “Don’t anybody get hurt. We just wanted to do a street stop on him.”

After witnessing the massive support today at the funeral for Officer David Sherrard in Dallas, this tragedy in Chicago is the worst I can imagine for police officers in a US city. Cmdr. Paul Bauer's most recent priority was to change the "revolving door" of criminals in and out of prison. This is all I can find on the killer. In a news clip, I did see them put him in the police cruiser.

Quote:
The 44-year-old suspect’s felony record goes back to 1998, when he was charged with armed robbery. He was convicted and sentenced to 16 years in prison.
In 2007, the man was charged with being a felon in possession of body armor, possession of a defaced firearm and possession of heroin. He got three years in prison on the gun charge, records show.
In 2011, he was charged with resisting an officer and battery. He was convicted of battery and given 30 days of community service, records show.
Finally, the suspect was convicted of drug possession in 2014 and received a two-year prison term.
The Sun-Times isn’t naming the man, who lives on the South Side, because he isn’t charged in Bauer’s death.
