A 3-year-old boy was killed and his 4-year-old sister was wounded when several gunmen fired nearly 150 rounds into a North Carolina home — in what police believe was tied to a high school feud.

Asiah Figueroa was asleep just before midnight Tuesday when the suspected teenage gunmen pulled up in two cars to his great-grandmother’s Charlotte home and squeezed off hundreds of bullets, Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said.

Asiah was struck by the gunfire and later died at a hospital. His 4-year-old sister was also struck, but is expected to survive, police said.

Investigators released two videos of the suspects pulling up to the home in hopes of getting help from the public in identifying them. Detectives believe the incident is linked to several other shootings which resulted in two homicides.

Home of the Charlotte 2016 anti-police riots.

Two shooters and no reloads yet author says there were 150 rounds. Where do I get me one of those 75-round magazines?

Ahhh, so gang violence is now called a feud. Apparently we’ve circled back to the 1800s.

150 rounds? Who has that kind of ammo?

Might as well be throwing silver ingots at them.

The video shows two cars pulling up with at least four people firing different weapons.

Let me guess, they were fighting over who should have won the high school’s chess tournament.

“high school feud”

We used to have those. A mascot statue or school name plaque taken away at night and a bunch of rival kids rescue them back just before the big football game. Brutal stuff.

But with 150 rounds shot in this high school feud, what will they do in college?

Forgot, fewer males are applying for college lately according to reports. Not that all 2021 young women are angels. Daily mug shots of defiant and violent ones teach us they have achieved equality with the teen male thugs. Thank you, affirmative action./s

LOL

Guy who lost threw a rook at the winner and she pulled hard on his bow tie and nearly strangled him before they were separated. Then it was a run for the cars to get the guns.
