Shocking video of a man shooting a police officer has been released to the public now that the suspect has been convicted. The Fourteenth Circuit Soliciter’s Office in South Carolina posted the video on their Facebook page Thursday.
The footage is from Estille Police Officer Quincy Smith’s bodycam from an incident on January 1, 2016.
Smith was responding to a call about a man harassing people outside of a convenience store. The video shows Smith approach a man on foot, who is on his phone with his other hand in his pocket. Smith asks him to stop and come over, when the man does not oblige, Smith points his taser at him and asks him to take his hands out of his pockets.
That’s when he shoots him.
(WARNING: Video depicts violent content)
The man fires eight times, hitting Smith four times.
The rest of the video shows Smith begging dispatch for help. At one point he tells dispatch, “Tell my family I love them.”
A Good Samaritan comes by, tries to keep Smith calm and gives him words of encouragement until first responders arrive.
The shooter is Malcolm Orr. He was charged with attempted murder and possession of a firearm in commission of a violent crime. He was convicted and is serving 35 years.
