Video Captured on Officer's Eyeglasses Helps Convict Man Who Shot Him

Video Captured on Officer's Eyeglasses Helps Convict Man Who Shot Him

Smith was responding to a call about a suspicious person after Charles Party Shop informed police a man was snatching groceries from people's hands, reported the State.

A court heard he had bought the special glasses camera himself. He spotted a man, later identified as Malcolm Orr, walking away from the store who fit the description and ordered him to stop.

Smith rushes back to his patrol vehicle and calls for backup.

"Come here man", says Smith. Smith yells. No answer. That's is when Orr pulled out a 9-mm handgun and fired at Smith, never taking the phone away from his ear. His right hand is concealed in his jacket.

Orr turned towards Smith and opened fire, eight rounds total.

The prosecutor added that the gunman shot Smith at least twice while the officer was laying on the round. Smith scrambles to the patrol auto to alert his dispatch.

Smith is in bad shape as he reaches his patrol vehicle.

Dr. James Dunne, an emergency room physician, testified that a bullet completely severed a vein in Smith's neck. "My arms are broken". His hands are slick with blood as he adjusts his radio frequency.

Smith is then heard saying, "I am hit". A bullet also passed through Smith's upper torso and was extracted from his back. Help me please. I'm hurt pretty bad. It's "Waffles/Eggs" by the artist Trey Songz.

"I didn't draw my firearm because at the time I didn't think it was warranted", he told WJCL.

But his glasses captured more than just the shocking violence, including a bystander rushing to Smith's aid as well as his emotional plea to the dispatcher. "I'm still trying to heal up injuries to my arm", Smith said.

Officer Quincy Smith caught the terrifying ordeal on a bodycam, begging fellow officers over his radio: "Tell my family I love them". "Quincy, oh my God", exclaims the woman, rushing towards the officer. "I've been shot in the neck".

First responders arrive and begin their work.

One of the last images the upside down camera records is an inverted ambulance.

Being shot starts to take a heavy toll on Smith.
