A veteran New York City police officer fatally shot himself Monday, becoming the fourth NYPD officer to commit suicide in as many weeks, reports The New York Post.

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., sources told The Post. The married father of three had texted his sergeant minutes before to tell him goodbye.

The three other officers include Brian Saar, a 20-year veteran who shot himself at his Suffolk County home; Terrence Dean, 28, of the 111th Precinct in Queens; and rookie cop Patrick Werner, 23, who shot himself in his parents' home in suburban Yorktown Heights after getting into an car accident and fleeing.
