Two new videos captured several individuals firing 150 rounds into a North Carolina home, leaving a 3-year-old boy dead.

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department posted the two videos to their Twitter page and said that they shared the video "in hopes someone in the community recognizes one of the vehicles or suspects."

The first video, which was captured by a Nest doorbell camera from a home across the street, shows several individuals exit two different vehicles after driving onto the road. According to police, the home was located near the 2400 block of Richard Rozzelle Drive in Charlotte, North Carolina.

After exiting the vehicles, the individuals can be seen firing hundreds of gunshots at the residence.

Another video posted by police shows a slightly different angle of the incident.

"If you recognize a vehicle or suspect in this video or the one posted before this one, please call a homicide detective at 704-432-TIPS, or leave the information anonymously with @CLTCrimeStopper," the department wrote in the tweet.

As the second video ends, the individuals can be seen getting back into two separate cars and driving away from the scene.

According to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, the shooting incident occurred on Tuesday, at around 11:45 p.m. local time, when officers with the department's North Division received numerous calls for shots fired.

Police initially said that the suspected shooters fired "more than 80 rounds toward the house," but on Wednesday said the suspects "fired nearly 150 rounds," at the home.

According to police, there were 11 people inside the home when the shooting occurred and a 3-year-old boy was fatally struck by the gunfire. The 3-year-old boy was identified by police as Asiah Figueroa. The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department also said that Figueroa's 4-year-old sister was struck by gunfire, but noted in a press release that she is "expected to survive."

While speaking at a press conference on Wednesday, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Captain Joel McNelly said, "This should outrage everyone who hears this."

"What we need is for you to be as outraged about this as we are," McNelly added.

McNelly also said that while no suspects have been identified or arrested, police currently believe that the incident is related to conflicts among high school students in the area.

In a statement sent to WCNC news in Charlotte, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School District said, "Recent acts of violence involving and directed toward students assigned to attend Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools indicate a significant problem in our community. These horrific acts are another terrible reminder of how disruptions in lives have caused pain for many families here, including for many CMS students. Violence resulting in death is a result of that pain."

Newsweek reached out to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department for further comment but did not receive a response in time for publication.
