A video showing two cops shoot into a car in a barrage that killed a 6-year-old boy was released by a judge Wednesday amid the investigation of the Louisiana marshals who are facing second-degree murder and attempted murder charges in the September 2015 incident.

The video shows the two officers firing repeatedly into a car. The officers shot 18 bullets into the vehicle before realizing the boy was inside, CNN reported.

The officers were attempting to detain the boy’s father, Christopher Few, after he argued with his girlfriend outside a bar and drove off in his car. Few was shot in the incident but survived.

The body camera footage came from a third officer who arrived on the scene for backup just before shots were fired.

The graphic video footage shows the officers shooting at the car, then realizing there's a child inside. The officers don’t help the boy, Jeremy, at first, saying they don't have gloves. Paramedics tell the officers he is dead as he is loaded into the ambulance.

Jeremy was later determined to have been shot 5 times.

Jeremy Few was autistic and nonverbal. He was sitting in the front passenger seat of the car at the time of the shooting.

Aspects of the incident are still under investigation. CNN reported a prior relationship existed between Christopher Few and Officer Norris Greenhouse Jr., and USA Today reported prior excessive force complaints were lodged against Officer Derrick Stafford.

The officers claimed Few rammed a police car prior to the shooting, but no evidence has been presented to support these claims, and the video does not show any collision.

The video was released during an evidentiary hearing Wednesday.
