Officer's camera catches attempted murder in SC

Officer's camera catches attempted murder in SC

The Fourteenth Circuit Solicitor's Office released the video on Thursday showing the shooting of Estill Police Officer Quincy Smith, who survived the shooting, on January 1, 2016.

A violent attack on a SC police officer a year ago was caught on a small camera attached to the officer's glasses, and that footage helped put away a suspect in an attempted murder case.

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

The video shows Estill Police officer Quincy Smith ordering Malcolm Antwan Orr to stop walking away.

"A camera in Smith's glasses, which the officer purchased for himself on Amazon, captured the incident", said officials with the solicitor's office. He would later call it the best 30 bucks he ever spent. Smith threatens to use his stun gun if Orr does not stop.

Officer Smith managed to get back to his patrol auto and notify the dispatcher of shots fired and that he needs help for a wound to the neck.

Officer Smith has since recovered from his injuries.

Orr turned towards Smith and opened fire, eight rounds total.




Smith drops to the ground, the video shows, and runs back to his patrol vehicle to call for help. "He was just walking away, but unfortunately I made a mistake ... and he got the upper hand", the officer said.

"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. I've been shot in the neck'. In the moments after the gunfire, the officer could be heard telling emergency dispatchers: "Tell my family I love them".

Injured, the officer scrambles back to his cruiser to call for help.

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

And as Mr Tompkins assures him that he will stay by his side, Smith adds: 'I can barely breathe.

"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.

Dr. James Dunne, an emergency room physician, testified that a bullet completely severed a vein in Smith's neck.
