Cop's Glasses Camera Captures Shooting Up Close In South Carolina

Estill Police Officer Quincy Smith was shot four times while responding to a suspicious persons call.

Smith, wearing glasses outfitted with a video camera, speaks to a woman in the store.

"Come here man", says Smith. Smith pursues Orr in his patrol auto and gets out to confront him.

Smith is still on medical leave, but he told WJCL that he wants to return to the department by the start of next year.

The man looks over at Smith a second time but continues to walk down the road. Smith yells. No answer. He continued walking and ignoring direct commands from Smith.

"If you don't stop sir, I'm going to tase you", Smith said.

Smith was hit four times, one of which struck his neck and struck a major vein. Two of the eight rounds were fired at Smith as he lay on the ground, Stone said.

At that point, the video shows Orr quickly drawing a 9mm handgun and firing multiple times - even as he kept the cellphone to his ear with his other hand.

Blood can be seen on the patrol car's decal as Smith lies on his side and waits for help.

WJCL reported that Orr was convicted of attempted murder and sentenced to 35 years in prison Wednesday.

Smith is in bad shape as he reaches his patrol vehicle. A bullet also passed through Smith's upper torso and was extracted from his back.

Mr Smith's terrified reflection can be seen in his auto window as he continues to describe his wounds: "My arms are broken. Dispatch E7 I'm hit!" Smith panicked, and ran back to his unit.

Smith moves away from the vehicle and quietly tells the emergency team: "Tell my family that I love them". It's "Waffles/Eggs" by the artist Trey Songz. He identifies himself at J. Thompkins. "I'm still trying to heal up injuries to my arm", Smith said.

Startling video footage captured by a SC cop's personal body-camera shows the officer being shot three times at point-blank range - with him asking a dispatcher to "tell my family that I love them" - in what he thought was his last dying breath. Smith asks him to "come here" again, to no avail.

Seven minutes after Orr fired his first shots, emergency sirens blare in the distance. "Quincy, oh my God", exclaims the woman, rushing towards the officer. I'm not playing with you.

Emergency responders arrive and put Smith onto a stretcher - and secure the camera that captured the whole incident.
