SPRINGFIELD TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WKRC) -- Police work to find clues after a college student is found dead at the scene of a home invasion robbery in Springfield Township.

Police say men pretending to be SWAT officers, broke in the front and back doors at his home on Tassie Lane and demanded money and drugs. They say 19-year-old Vince Turnage was in the basement asleep, and tried to run out the door. That's when he was shot and killed.

Police say the home invasion was drug related, but that the 19-year-old was not the target. Turnage was a Mt. Healthy graduate and was on the track and field roster at the University of Akron.

Police have not released any suspect information.
