The solicitor's office says 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.

Stone described how Smith was sacked upon "not once, not twice, not three times, or four, or five, or six, or seven, but eight times" during the shooting, which left the officer with broken arm bones and a "life-threatening" neck injury.

A court heard he had bought the special glasses camera himself.

"Shots fired", the officer is heard screaming, as he falls to the ground. Smith pursues Orr in his patrol vehicle and gets out to confront him.

Estill Police Officer Quincy Smith was responding to a report of a suspicious person when he spotted a man leaving a store who fit the description given. With one hand holding a cell phone to his ear, Orr pulls a pistol out of his pocket with his other hand and fires off eight shots at Smith. Smith then threatened to use his stun gun on Orr if he did not comply with his order to stop.

The solicitor's office says Smith was sacked upon "not once, not twice, not three times, or four, or five, or six, or seven, but eight times".

The camera shows his hands covered with blood as he operates the radio, telling the force control room he's been hit.

Horrifying footage has been released showing the moment a police who had been shot at several times asking a dispatcher to "tell my family I love them" in what he believed would be his final words.

A bystander, who witnessed the shooting, approaches Smith and offers to help.

A clerk at a local store told the officer that a man wearing camouflage and a red bandana had been trying to steal groceries away from customers.

The horrific scene and near death of Smith was captured on the video released Thursday, a day after the conviction and sentencing of Orr, who faces 35 years in prison for attempted murder and gun-related charges, South Carolina's 14th Circuit's Solicitor's Office said in a news release.

Malcolm Antwan Orr was found guilty on Wednesday for the shooting after a two-day trial at the Hampton County Courthouse.

Orr received a 35-year prison sentence.
