Estill Police Officer Quincy Smith managed to survive after being shot four times while on patrol in the small town in SC 1 January 2016.

The officer's camera glasses, which he bought off Amazon, captured the moment he was hit and his desperate plea to an emergency dispatcher, asking them to tell his family that he loved them, as he lay bloody waiting for help.

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

Before signing off he told the dispatcher to "Tell my family I love them".

This decision comes after a two-day trial at the Hampton County Courthouse. "Orr refused and continued to walk away from Smith, holding a cellphone to his ear and keeping his right hand in his jacket pocket", prosecutors said."Smith told him to take his hand out or he would 'be tasered.' That's when Orr brandished a 9 mm handgun and began firing, never taking the phone away from his ear".

The officer of Estill Police Department, Quincy Smith, was lucky to survive the attack, the New York Post reported.

The incident occurred on January 1, 2016, at around 11 a.m. EDT, according to the officials, reports said.

"Come here for a second", Smith calls out.

Bullets broke two bones in the officer's arm, severed a vein in his neck and passed through his upper torso. Orr continues to fire rounds at Smith as he goes to the ground, eight shots in total, before he flees. He was sentenced to 35 years in prison. "I'm not playing with you!" "Take your hands out of your pocket". "Stay with me, man", as he struggles to figure out how he can best help Smith, who goes to the ground outside his patrol auto. 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. The officer exits the vehicle and asks the suspect to "come here".

Orr was eventually caught and Officer Smith received medical attention.

The officer's mom, also a police officer, has established a GoFundMe page for her son as he recovers from his injuries.
