After the fifth time Smith asked, Orr pulled a gun out from his sweatshirt pocket and shot the police officer.

Dramatic video captured the moment a SC police officer was shot multiple times on New Year's Day in 2016.

Smith spotted a man matching the description who was later identified as Orr.

At that point, the video shows Orr quickly drawing a 9mm handgun and firing multiple times - even as he kept the cellphone to his ear with his other hand.

After former Ferguson, Missouri, police officer Darren Wilson shot and killed Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager, in 2014, activists and lawmakers across the country called for a widespread use of body cameras.

"Dispatch, I'm hit! Dispatch, Echo 7, I'm hit!"

Bullets broke two bones in Smith's arm, severed a vein in his neck, and passed through his upper torso.

The jury at Hampton County Court spent just 45 minutes deliberating before finding Orr guilty on all charges.

"Tell my family that I love them", Smith says to a dispatcher after frantically running back to his police auto, covered in blood. After Smith ordered Orr to stop, Orr fired eight shots.

An officer wearing camera glasses captured video of the moment he was shot four times at close-range by a robbery suspect.

He approaches a man dressed head to toe in army fatigues and demands that he stop and take his hands out of his pocket.

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

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

Orr, 29, has been jailed for 35 years after being found guilty of attempted murder and possessing a weapon in a violent crime.

Injured, the officer scrambles back to his cruiser to call for help.

But Smith said he forgives Orr - and even prays for him and his family.

"Come here man", says Smith.

14th Circuit Solicitor Duffie Stone, who prosecuted the case, said: "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".
