One man died in an apparent stabbing in York City Sunday night.

Joselito Pagan-Ocasio, 36, was found dead in a home in the 300 block of East King Street around 11:30 p.m., according to the York County Coroner’s Office.

The situation was initially reported as a shooting, but the coroner’s office believes Pagan-Ocasio died as a result of a stabbing, an office statement said.

An autopsy to determine the cause and manner of his death is scheduled to be performed at Lehigh Valley Hospital in Allentown later this week.
