Widow Of Slain CPD Commander Paul Bauer Sues Gun Site

The widow of slain Chicago Police Commander Paul Bauer is suing the website used to sell the gun tied to her husband’s murder. The pistol that Shomari Legghette is accused of using to kill Bauer in 2018 at the Thompson Center in the Loop was sold by a Wisconsin man on Armslist.com, one of the nation’s largest online gun marketplaces. A federal lawsuit filed yesterday in Milwaukee claims the site allowed the sales of weapons without background checks, which led to Legghette getting his hands on the suspected murder weapon. Legghette’s murder trial is expected to start later this month.
