Officer's camera catches attempted murder in SC

South Carolina police officer shooting

Video Bodycam bought online films attempted murder

Dramatic video captured the moment a SC police officer was shot multiple times on New Year's Day in 2016.

The footage helped convict Orr, who was found guilty of attempted murder and possessing a weapon in a violent crime on Wednesday and sentenced to 35 years in prison.

Officer Quincy Smith was shot four times after he was deployed to a suspicious person call.

According to authorities, Smith spotted a man matching that description walking away from the store along Railroad Avenue.

"Bullets broke two bones in Smith's arm, severed a vein in his neck, and passed through his upper torso", CBS reports.

The South Carolina officer survived, and months later, while giving evidence against Orr - the man who tried to kill him - Mr Smith described the camera glasses as the best $30 (£23) he had ever spent.

The officer gave Orr one more final warning that he would be forced to use a Taser if he didn't comply with his demands. In the recording, Smith's voice can be heard telling a police dispatcher: "Tell my family that I love them".

The Fourteenth Circuit Solicitor's Office shared the entire video taken on Officer Smith's glasses.

Orr turned towards Smith and opened fire, eight rounds total. Smith told him to take his hand out or he would "be tasered".

"Shots fired", screamed Smith into his radio as he headed for his patrol auto and the sound of additional gunfire is heard.

"Tell my family I love them", implored a SC police officer whose video of his own near-death shooting was released this week, just one day after his convicted attacker was sentenced to prison. For about eight minutes until emergency responders arrive, the officer pleads for help and talks to a bystander. Smith said he prays for Orr and his family. I don't know. Where are you shot at?

"I didn't draw my firearm because at the time I didn't think it was warranted", he told WJCL.

Then, the man quickly pulls a gun and starts firing at the officer.

"I had nightmares sometimes, stuff like that, about the incident", Smith said.

However, Smith suddenly noticed the man put his hand in the pocket that suggested that he was carrying a weapon.

"If but not for the grace of God and some very good doctors, this would not only have been a murder case, but a death penalty case", said prosecutor Duffie Stone.
