YONKERS: 3 Corrections Officers Shot in Home

BRYN MAWR, Yonkers (YPD) – On Friday, December 7th, 2018, at approximately 11:32 PM, members of the Yonkers Police Department responded to a single-family residence at 82 Buckingham Road on a report of a shooting incident with multiple victims. Upon arrival, officers made entry into the home to discover three people down on the floor with multiple gunshot wounds, and a fourth uninjured person. The scene was immediately secured and EMS rendered aid as all three persons were transported to local area hospitals for medical attention. The area was cordoned off and a criminal investigation was initiated.

Detectives from the Major Case Squad and Crime Scene Unit responded to the scene. Investigators are actively interviewing subjects, canvassing for surveillance video, and processing forensic and ballistic evidence.

The investigation has yielded that the home was occupied by four persons: a male victim, a female victim, the male victim’s mother, and an uninvolved family member living in a separate part of the home. The male victim and female victim were involved in a domestic relationship; her ex-boyfriend, a male suspect who was armed with a handgun, approached the residence from the rear and forced entry through a sliding glass door. Therein, the male suspect engaged the male and female victims firing multiple shots at them. There was an exchange of gunfire, with the victim(s) firing shots at the suspect. Both victims and the suspect were iNcapacitated at the scene. The male victim’s mother who was in a separate room was alerted by the commotion and called 911.

The male and female victims suffered multiple gunshots to their persons. The male suspect suffered multiple gunshots to his person, including a gunshot wound to the head; the gunshot wound to the head may have been self-inflicted in an effort to commit suicide. All three parties were conveyed to area hospitals. The male suspect was subsequently pronounced deceased. The male and female victims are in critical condition with life-threatening injuries. All three parties were known to each other and were employed as Correction Officers with the Westchester County Department of Correction. The deceased male suspect is identified as Edward QUINOY, a forty-year-old resident of Tarrytown, NY. The shooting incident was limited to the residence and no additional suspects are being sought. Investigators have recovered several handguns from the scene; it is undetermined at this time which victim fired at the suspect. The Yonkers Police Department is working closely with our County law enforcement partners, and the investigation is on-going. No additional information will be released at this time pending investigative progress.
