Background: Chicago police Cmdr. Paul Bauer, 53 years old, was shot to death at the Thompson Center on Feb. 13, 2018, after chasing a man fleeing from tactical officers, police said. Bauer, a 31-year-veteran who had been in the area for training, confronted the man, according to police and other sources.

Bauer had been in the area after attending “active shooter” training, which prepares officers for mass shootings. He also had a meeting with aldermen scheduled for later in the day.

Bauer, a married father of a 13-year-old daughter, was the first Chicago cop shot and killed since 2011, and the highest-ranking officer killed in decades.

The rep scheme was designed as follows: 2 rounds for the month of his death, burpees for his age, kettlebell swings for the number of the district where Bauer worked, row for the address of shooting and thrusters for the date of death.
