Officials in South Carolina this week released dramatic glasses cam video from a January 1, 2016 shooting of an Estill, South Carolina police officer. His assailant, Estill's Malcolm Orr pulled a gun and opened fire, hitting the officer in the neck and chest, as well as breaking both his arms. In a message to the dispatcher, Officer Smith says, "tell my family that I love them". Orr was sentenced to the maximum amount of time: 30 years for the attempted murder offense and five years for the weapons violation.
Smith moves away from the auto and quietly tells the emergency team: 'Tell my family that I love them'.
The jury at Hampton County Court spent just 45 minutes deliberating before finding Orr guilty on all charges.
Smith tells him multiple times to stop and to take his hand out of his pocket and he threatens to shoot him with a Taser if he does not comply.
The story began on New Year's Day in 2016 when Smith was dispatched to an attempted robbery at a convenience store.
Smith was struck with four shots, according to CBS News.
At about 11 a.m., Smith responded to a suspicious persons call at the Charles Party Shop along US 321. At least two of the rounds were fired as Smith lay on the ground, the release stated.
