YONKERS, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – A Yonkers teen will be laid to rest today.
Police said the 18-year-old was not the intended target.
The Lincoln High School junior was an honor roll student who had big dreams of becoming a surgeon.
“If someone was having a bad day, she would talk to them, make them feel better. She would put someone first before she put herself,” her classmate Elijah Tillis told CBS2. “The last words that Marylin said to her sister was, ‘run as fast as you can,’ and she went home.”
Montanez’s funeral was set for 10 a.m. Wednesday at Community Home for Funerals on Yonkers Ave. A GoFundMe account has been set up for the Montanez family.
