Sacramento Kings fans have set a new Guinness World Record for indoor crowd roar.

The new record, set during the second timeout of the first quarter of Friday's game against the Detroit Pistons on ESPN, is 124.9 decibels. The previous record set by Milwaukee Bucks fans in 2008 was 106.6 decibels.

The current record for outdoor crowd noise at a sports stadium (137.5 decibels) was set on Oct. 13 by Kansas City Chiefs fans at Arrowhead Stadium.

According to CBS Sacramento, the 124.9 decibels Kings fans generated is equivalent to the noise of a police siren.

Update:

Kings fans outdid themselves in the same game. At the start of the fourth quarter, decibel levels reached 126, which is now the loudest Guinness indoor crowd roar.
