5:30pm Update: The tragic circumstance that culminated in the shootout yesterday night actually began its stirring of anger, passion, and desire for retribution at the well-known Valahalla eatery known as The Cabin Bar/Restaurant. It was at the Cabin that Ed Quinoy learned where his former girlfriend Nichole Nivaha, at one time referred erroneously referred by the Yonkers Tribune as “Nazarrio”, and her boyfriend Robert Reed were that night. And so Ed Quinoy drove to the home of Robert Reed. As the Yonkers Police Department press release noted, Ed Quinoy broke through a sliding glass door in the back of the house to gain entry. The noise alerted Robert Reed and Nichole Nivaha and they each pulled out their firearm. Ed Quinoy shot Nichole Nivaha in the face and stomach, and shot 4 to 5 bullets into Robert Reed’s stomach. Both are in critical condition, Robert Reed slightly more so than Nichole Nivaha. It was either Nichole Nivaha or Robert Reed that was able to shoot Ed Quinoy in the stomach. After Ed Quinoy’s attempted murder, he departed the house the same way he entered. This time he shot himself in the head; evidently his suicide effort would eventual culminate in his being declared deceased at Jacobi Medical Center in The Bronx.

Where the wounded were initially taken for medical treatment is unknown to the Yonkers Tribune. Both Nichole Nivaha and Robert Reed were transported to Westchester Medical Center for treatment where they are  receiving continuing medical attention, while Ed Quinoy was taken to Jacobi Medical Center where he was declared deceased.

Not only had Nichole Nivaha allegedly suffered abuse by her former boyfriend Ed Quinoy, but additional corroboration of Ed Quinoy’s conduct to other women with whom he had a relationship have alleged that he was abusive to them as well, but none had ever filed a complaint against Ed Quinoy fearing the worst form of retribution might be exacted by Ed Quinoy against them.

Yonkers Tribune’s sources advise that Ed Quinoy was known to have long suffered from anger / management issues. He was known to have such issues in his personal relationships, with his peers at the Westchester County Department of Corrections, as well as with inmates incarcerated at the facility. Ed Quinoy was designated to be suffering from J.I., known as a “Job Injury”, which pertained to those issues and was the rationale and basis for his hiatus from presently reporting to work.

  1. Best wishes and prayers for these officers. Robert Reed was the gay father on the Brady Bunch. It was probably a platonic relationship.
