VIDEO: Estill Police Officer Quincy Smith Gunned Down By Man Who Doesn’t Even Stop Phone Call
Video of Malcolm Orr Shooting Officer Quincy Smith
Estill, SC – The horrifying video of Estill Police Officer Quincy Smith being shot repeatedly by a suspect has been released, and captured his anguished cries for help on the radio, as well as instructions for the dispatcher to tell his family.
The incident occurred January 1, 2016, when Officer Smith responded to a suspicious person call, according to ABC News.
Upon arrival at the scene, Officer Smith observed a man leaving a store who fit the description of the suspect given in the call. He called out to the suspect, later identified as Malcolm Antwan Orr, to stop, and Orr kept walking away from him, with his right hand in the right pocket of his camo jacket.
Officer Smith commanded Orr several times to stop, and he refused. He then told Orr to stop or he would tase him, and he can be seen in the video holding the taser.
Orr then started turning quickly, pulled a gun out of that right pocket, and shot Officer Smith four times. It was later determined that Orr had shot Officer Smith at least twice as he laid on the ground.
Unbelievably, Officer Smith was able to get up and run back to his vehicle, and his blood-stained right hand can be seen picking up his radio mike.
He called dispatch, as he lay beside his vehicle, and said several times that he had been shot, that he had two broken arms, and that he was bleeding from his neck. The transmission ended with Officer Smith telling the dispatcher, “tell my family that I love them.”
Officer Smith was transported to a local hospital for treatment, and doctors discovered that he had two broken arm bones and “a life-threatening neck wound”. He survived the shooting, and had a long recovery.
Orr was found by police about two hours after the shooting, and was arrested. On Wednesday, August 9, he was found guilty of attempted murder and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime after a two-day trial, according to a press release from South Carolina Solicitor Duffie Stone. He was sentenced to 35 years in prison.
The video was filmed by a camera that was on Officer Smith’s eyeglasses, and that he had purchased himself from Amazon.
