Leaking gas

Hey so I just bought a 2006 Vulcan 750 and it’s my first bike so this is all very new to me. I just put the bike on the road and the first day it started leaking gas and won’t start anymore. I’m posting a little video with it. If anyway could let me know what’s wrong or how to go about it that would be awesome!

Where is the gas leaking from? Your pictures are too small for me to see well enough to do any good

I’m pretty sure it is coming from the carburetor.

Well, first, there are 2 carburetors, and several places on them that gas could leak from. It is impossible to describe a carburetor with words, so large pictures should help. It could be where the fuel lines connect, a stuck float, needle valve not sealing, drain screws leaking, and about a dozen other things.
