    2 Arrested, 2 on the Loose for Home Invasion, Murder of Teen

    Another man has been charged in the death of a teenager found shot in the back on the side of a road after police say he was abducted during a home invasion robbery.

    Police previously charged 25-year-old Andre Collier, Rasheed Teel, 21, of Philadelphia and 22-year-old Charles Freeman of Stowe with the murder of 19-year-old Kareem Ali Borowy of West Pottsgrove Township. On Monday, police announced that 27-year-old Omar Miller was also charged in connection to Borowy's death.

    While Teel and Freeman are currently in custody, Miller and Collier are still on the loose. Both men are considered armed and dangerous.

    Police say the four suspects 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.

    Borowy, a 2012 graduate of Pottsgrove High School, was targeted, according to investigators.

    His neighbor, Dee Bleacher, says there have been prior issues at the house where the home invasion took place.

    "Police have been there numerous times," said Bleacher. "Maybe once every two months on average."

    Investigators are still trying to determine a motive. Preliminary information suggests that drugs were involved however, according to law enforcement sources close to the investigation.
