Video recorded from a camera in a SC police officer's glasses shows him getting shot four times past year as he tells a dispatcher, "tell my family that I love them". But Orr kept walking.

The dramatic moment a SC police officer was shot was caught on camera and the video was released to the public on Thursday.
Smith is then heard saying, "I am hit".
Orr had continued to talk on the phone while unloading his gun into Smith, who sustained a life-threatening neck wound and two broken arms in the shocking attack.

-Later, Smith is heard asking another officer to tell his family he loves them. 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 auto.
According to NBC News, the encounter was taped on a camera in the officer's glasses that he bought on Amazon and was released Thursday, the same day the suspect was sentenced to prison.
The man looks over at Smith a second time but continues to walk down the road.

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