Release and robbery

In November 2014 Gindia was released.[1] He was free for just three months.[1] Following a failed robbery at a Vienna shoppping centre Gindia shot at a policeman.[1] He received minor injuries when police shot back.[1] At trial he was intending to argue he intended to commit suicide by cop, and missed the officer on purpose.[1]


Days before a scheduled court hearing Gindia killed himself in the Josefstadt Prison in Vienna.[1] He was being housed in solitary confinement at his own request and his psychiatric health was being monitored.[1]
