Estill officer survives shooting caught on camera

Posted August 12, 2017

Dramatic surveillance video recorded by a pair of eyeglasses with a camera in them captured the moment a SC officer was shot at least three times on New Year's Day in 2016.

Horrifying footage has been released showing the moment a police who had been shot at several times asking a dispatcher to "tell my family I love them" in what he believed would be his final words.

Orr was sentenced to the maximum amount of time with 30 years for the attempted murder offense and 5 years for the weapons violation.

Smith moves away from the vehicle and quietly tells the emergency team: 'Tell my family that I love them'.

The jury deliberated for less than 45 minutes before handing down the guilty verdict.

According to Estill Police, Smith attempted to make contact with Orr, who matched the description of a suspicious person given by dispatchers.

At about 11 a.m., Smith responded to a suspicious persons call at the Charles Party Shop along US 321.

Bullets broke two bones in the officer's arm, severed a vein in his neck and passed through his upper torso.

At least two of the eight rounds were fired while Smith was lying on the ground and another two were fired as Smith ran for cover.

"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. "Oh God, Jesus. You know who shot you, Quincy?" Smith told him to take his hand out or he would "be tasered". "Dispatch, help me. I'm hit in my neck someplace, my arms are broken, help me please", he implores as his voice gets weaker.

But the man continues to walk away slowly, ignoring Smith's commands.

A bystander, who witnessed the shooting, approaches Smith and offers to help.

However, Orr took out the weapon, a 9mm handgun, and fired at Smith.

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