13-year-old Florida boy visiting family stabbed to death in York City


A 13-year-old Florida boy died Saturday after being stabbed at a residence in York City, according to the coroner's office.

The York County Coroner's Office identified the victim as Tre J. Hartman, of Winter Haven, Florida. He was visiting family in York City, the office said.

The incident happened in a residence in the 1000 block of East Philadelphia Street at about 1:40 a.m. Saturday, June 1, and Tre died at York Hospital at 3:17 a.m. that morning, according to the coroner's office.

An autopsy is scheduled for 10 a.m. Monday, June 3, the coroner's office stated.

As of Sunday afternoon, there was no new information in the case, said Officer Derek Hartman, spokesman for York City Police.

A partial obituary Sunday identified Tre's parents as Chad and Terri Hartman.

There will be a viewing at 6 p.m. Wednesday at John W. Keffer Funeral Home, 2114 W. Market St., followed by a service at 7 p.m., according to the obituary.

East Philadelphia Street was quiet Sunday afternoon, with a few people sitting outside on their front porches.

Howard Ness, 58, of the 900 block of East Philadelphia Street, said it's usually a quiet neighborhood.

In the 17 years he and his wife have lived there, Ness said, there have only been a handful of incidents.
