    An West Pottsgrove Township, Pa. teenager died after armed men burst into his home and demanded money. NBC10's Jesse Gary reports.

    Police say the four men entered Borowy's home on the 1200 block of Manatawny Street in West Pottsgrove Township back on May 5, shortly after 2 p.m. Neighbors say an older woman and her adopted children live inside the home. The suspects allegedly demanded money and then dragged Borowy out of the house at gunpoint.

    About a half hour later, officials say a passing motorist saw Borowy waving his hand and yelling for help on the side of the road on the 2100 block of Sanatoga Station Road in Lower Pottsgrove Township. Borowy was shot in the back. An ambulance arrived but the responders were unable to save his life.

    Collier was arraigned and remanded to the Montgomery County Correctional Facility without bail.
