    Report: 4th NYPD officer in 4 weeks kills himself


    A 14-year veteran of the New York Police Department apparently shot himself to death Monday after finishing his shift, becoming the fourth NYPD officer to commit suicide in less than a month, The New York Post reported Tuesday.

    Matthew Schindler, 39, finished his shift in Queens, N.Y., and then shot himself under the chin off of the Long Island Expressway in Jericho around 4:30 p.m. ET, sources told The Post. The married father of three had texted his sergeant minutes before to tell him goodbye, The Post reported.

    “He was one of the nicest people we ever met,” a family friend, Ryan Proce, told The Post. “He’s just an all-around great guy.”

    How sad. These are young officers too. I wonder why?
