Emmanuel Valentin Perez, 18, a student at Mount Vernon High School, pled not guilty in Westchester County Court to first-degree manslaughter and is being held on $500,000 bail in Westchester County Jail.

Perez is accused of killing Manuel Salazar, 32, a married father with two young children, about 9:30 p.m. June 28 in the area of 126 Valley Street and the Margotta Court Park apartments.

An unidentified 24-year-old man was also shot in the incident but has been released from the hospital.

Salazar died at Westchester Medical Center after being transported by Sleepy Hollow EMS.

Sleepy Hollow Police have reportedly recovered the gun used in the shooting and were aided in their investigation by surveillance video in the area. No motive has been revealed.

Salazar formerly lived in Sleepy Hollow and attended Sleepy Hollow High School.

His wife, Natalie Salazar, set up a GoFundMe page that has raised more than $26,000.

“Never in a million years I would think I would be doing this,” she wrote. “Manny was a very loving husband, father, brother and son. We lost him young and in a very hurtful way. Leaving behind so many people that loved and cared for him always.”
