The death of a 13-year-old Florida boy in York City early Saturday morning was caused by an accidental stab wound to the neck, police said.

Police said they responded to a home in the 1000 block of East Philadelphia Street about 1:30 a.m. Saturday, June 1, for a report of a medical emergency.

The boy, Tre J. Hartman, was taken to York Hospital, where he succumbed to his injury about 3:30 a.m.

Police continued to investigate Tre's manner of death, but after reviewing the results of an autopsy Monday and consulting with the York County District Attorney's Office, police said they determined the incident was an accidental self-impalement.

Tre, of Winter Haven, Florida, was visiting family in the area, according to the York County Coroner's Office.
