The video, released by the Fourteenth Circuit Solicitor's Office, shows Estill Police Officer Quincy Smith responding to a call about a man who was harassing people outside a convenience store on January 1, 2016 in SC. He was given the maximum possible sentence under the law of 35 years in prison.

Officer Quincy Smith was called to investigate a suspicious man trying to snatch groceries from a convenience store in the small town of about 2,000 people.

Smith, who was wearing glasses that had a camera inside, spotted Orr, who matched the description the store clerk gave him.

Footage filmed on a $30 (£23) camera for his glasses, which Smith personally bought himself, shows the officer repeatedly asking Orr to stop walking away and take his hands out of his pockets.

Officer Quincy Smith was shot four times by Orr when he was responding to a call. He radios into dispatch, "Dispatch, please tell my family, I love them".

Two grand juries decided not to indict Officer Daniel Pantaleo in Garner's death.

Rafa Benitez Has Contacted Arsene Wenger Over Possible Signing of Arsenal Striker
The 21-year-old was sent home from Chelsea's pre-season tour of China after he made negative comments about the country on his Instagram account.

The solicitor's office says 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 your pocket!"

Smith drops to the ground, the video shows, and runs back to his patrol auto to call for help.

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

Dr. James Dunne, the emergency room physician who treated Smith at Memorial Health Medical Center in Savannah, testified that a bullet completely severed a vein in the right side of Smith's neck. "I'm not playing with you".

Smith sounds as if he is about to pass out, telling the dispatcher that he was hit in the neck and had two broken arms. Orr looks straight at him and pulls out what officials have said is a 9 mm handgun. "Stay with me man", the man said. Smith said he prays for Orr and his family. For about eight minutes until emergency responders arrive, the officer pleads for help and talks to a bystander.
