Malcolm Orr fired eight times at a South Carolina police officer last year

Officer Quincy Smith of the Estill Police Department was shot at least three times while on duty on New Year's Day in 2016, court records show.

Orr, 29, of Hampton County, was convicted Wednesday of attempted murder and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime. He received the maximum sentence of 35 years behind bars.

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

The clip begins after Smith spots Orr, who matched the description of a man who was harassing shoppers outside of a store, walking down a street as he talked on a cell phone that he was holding in his left hand. Smith purchased a pair of glasses with a camera on them and was wearing them during the incident.

Giving evidence at the trial, Smith described the device as the best $30 (£23) he has ever spent.

In the video, Smith could be heard telling emergency responders, "Tell my family that I love them".

Smith is still recovering from his injuries and remains on medical leave, according to WJCL 22. 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, back to his parked patrol vehicle.

-"Take your hands out of your pocket!"

Smith pursues Orr in his patrol vehicle and gets out to confront him. The footage shows his bloodied hands as he shouts: "Dispatch, I'm hit!".

"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'm not playing with you!"

Thankfully, Smith was able to tell his family himself. "I am going to stay here with you".

But his glasses captured more than just the shocking violence, including a bystander rushing to Smith's aid as well as his emotional plea to the dispatcher.

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

Duffie Stone, the 14th Circuit Solicitor, said in a press release: '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'.
