“I am going to be shot.” Therefore they can’t kill him for the statement being false as it will make it true. They also can’t hang him for it will make the statement true. This leaves them with letting him go.

He would have said this – “This statement is false”  ,
In this case , if they considered the statement to be true , then the statement would have been again false but then again true , and so on .
