Asiah’s four-year-old sister was wounded but is expected to survive, officials from the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department added.

Police Chief Johnny Jennings called the killing “absolutely senseless”, according to local news outlet WFAE.

Talking about Asiah’s sister he said: “She will survive her injuries, but for the rest of her life, she has to realise she was in the house when her three-year-old brother was senselessly murdered and taken away from this earth.”

No arrests have been made, but police have released footage of the incident as part of an appeal to catch those involved.
