A SC man has been sentenced to 35 years in prison after a police officer's eyeglass camera recorded the man shooting him.

The shooting took place just after 11 a.m. on January 1, 2016 when Smith responded to calls from a store in Hampton County, S.C. of a man attempting to snatch groceries from customers. He radios into dispatch, "Dispatch, please tell my family, I love them".

Estill police officer Quincy Smith was responding to a suspicious person call when he spotted a man leaving a store who fit the description of the person described in the call, according to a news release from 14th Circuit Solicitor Duffie Stone.

Smith was responding to a complaint about a man, wearing camouflage and a red bandana, stealing groceries from customers at a store.

According to WFTV, the suspect who attempted to kill Smith is named Malcolm Antwan Orr. He had previously purchased the glasses with his own money.

Orr continues to ignore the officer and does not even take his mobile phone away from his ear, even after Smith threatens to Taser him. As Smith prepares to confront the man, the suspect who has one hand in his pocket, and the other on his phone, makes eye contact with the officer.

Eventually, Orr takes out a gun and fires multiple shots at the officer, sending him to the ground before he manages to flee to his auto.

"Come here for a second", Smith calls out. After Smith ordered Orr to stop, Orr fired eight shots.

Orr looked over at Smith and draws a pistol, firing at the officer eight times.

Smith: I've been shot in the chest?

He manages to run back to his patrol auto and radio for help. "Dispatch, please tell my family I love them".

The shots broke two bones in Smith's arm and punctured a vein in his neck, but, thankfully, he survived. "My arms are broken". Its first chorus ends on prophetic line: "I won't leave without you, I won't leave without you".

The entire exchange was captured on shocking body camera footage and released after the shooter, 29-year-old Malcolm Orr of Estill, S.C., was convicted of attempted murder and possessing a weapon in a violent crime.
