Officer's bodycam video records his own shooting, helps convict suspect

Officer's bodycam video records his own shooting, helps convict suspect

That's when Orr pulled a gun from his pocket and opened fire hitting officer Smith multiple times.

The video, released by the Fourteenth Circuit Solicitor's Office, shows Estill Police Officer Quincy Smith responding to a call about a man who was harassing people outside a convenience store on January 1, 2016 in SC. Orr was walking with his back to the officer and one hand holding a cellphone to his ear.

She desperately begins praying as officers and paramedics arrive to help Smith.

Malcolm Orr fired eight times at a SC police officer a year ago.

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

Smith is on medical leave and he is still recovering from injuries to his neck, torso and arm.

A jury deliberated for less than 45 minutes before delivering the guilty verdict, the news release said.

Smith's voice can be heard at point in the video telling an emergency dispatcher, "Tell my family that I love them". After Smith ordered Orr to stop, Orr fired eight shots.

SC police officer Quincy Smith bought his own eyeglass-camera on Amazon to help record his interactions with the public during his shift.

"Stay with me", the bystander pleads.

"Shots fired!" Smith yells into his handheld radio, the high-definition image spinning as if the glasses were flung from the roof of a building.

"Shots fired", the officer is heard screaming, as he falls to the ground. She gestures toward a park and says a man later identified as Malcolm Antwan Orr, 29, in a camouflage hunting outfit, is under a tree some distance away. Smith noticed the man had his hands in his pockets and drew his taser.

14th Circuit Solicitor Duffie Stone, who prosecuted the case, said: "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".

The shocking footage was released after Orr was sentenced to 35 years in jail, being found guilty of attempted murder and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.
