YONKERS -

The man who opened fire on his ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend before killing himself in Yonkers Friday had a violent past, according to another woman he’d dated.

Two people remain hospitalized after an attempted murder-suicide involving three Westchester County Department of Correction officers.

Police say 40-year-old Edward Quinoy, of Tarrytown, forced himself into the Buckingham Road home Friday where his ex-girlfriend and her boyfriend live.

According to police, Quinoy opened fire as he broke into the home, shooting his ex-girlfriend and her boyfriend multiple times.

Police say Quinoy shot the male victim five times in the torso.  They say he shot his ex-girlfriend one time in the torso and one time in the face.

Quinoy was shot four times and police believe he died from a self-inflicted gunshot to the head.

News 12 spoke exclusively with a woman who says she's an ex-girlfriend of Quinoy.  She didn't want to be identified, but claims Quinoy was abusive during the time she was with him.

"I've had my teeth broken. I've had an eye socket broken," she says.

The two victims, whose names have not been released, were taken to the hospital in very serious condition.
