ESTILL, SC (WTOC) -

An Estill man who was convicted of shooting a police officer has received a 35-year sentence.

Malcolm Antwan Orr, 29,  shot an Estill Police officer on New Year's Day in 2016. Orr was found guilty of attempted murder and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime. This decision comes after a two-day trial at the Hampton County Courthouse.

Orr was sentenced to the maximum amount of time with 30 years for the attempted murder offense and five years for the weapons violation. Orr must serve these sentences consecutively. 

Officer Quincy Smith was shot four times by Orr when he was responding to a call. Smith purchased a pair of glasses with a camera on them and was wearing them during the incident.

The Fourteenth Circuit Solicitor's Office shared the entire video taken on Officer Smith's glasses. Warning, the video is graphic and could be upsetting to some:

On the recording, you can hear Smith's voice as he lay outside his patrol car. You hear him say to the emergency dispatcher, "Tell my family I love them."

"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 14th Circuit Solicitor Duffie Stone, the prosecutor in this case.

Dr. James Dunne, the emergency room physician who treated Smith at Memorial University Medical Center in Savannah testified that a bullet completely severed a vein in the right side of Smith's neck. A bullet also went through Smith's upper torso and was extracted from his back. 

The jury took less than 45 minutes to deliberate before coming back with a guilty verdict.
