'Tell my family I love them'

South Carolina police officer's camera glasses shows him being shot four times as gunman gets 35 years (GRAPHIC)

But without breaking stride, the gunman, Malcolm Orr, pulls a gun and shoots him. In the recording, Smith's voice can be heard telling a police dispatcher: "Tell my family that I love them".

On Wednesday, Orr was convicted of attempted murder and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime and was sentenced to 35 years in prison. It was the maximum sentence for the charges.

Passer-by J Tompkins is filmed stopping to help Smith, who is heard saying: "I can barely breathe, tell them to hurry up".

A jury deliberated for less than 45 minutes before delivering the guilty verdict, the news release said.

The footage begins with Smith pursuing the suspect on foot, first ordering him to stop and then threatening to taser 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.

Smith was struck with four shots, according to CBS News.

The incident began at 11 a.m. when Smith responded to a suspicious person call at the Charles Party Shop along USA 321.

The shots broke two bones in Smith's arm and punctured a vein in his neck, but, thankfully, he survived. He fires off at least eight rounds, hitting Smith at least three times. Smith told him to take his hand out or he would "be tasered".

With the men just feet apart, Smith points his stun gun at Orr.

Smith is still recovering from his injuries and remains on medical leave, according to WJCL 22.

A SC man has been sentenced to 35 years in prison after a police officer's eyeglass camera recorded the man shooting him. "I'm not playing with you". Smith said he prays for Orr and his family.

Smith tells a dispatcher he thinks he's been hit in the neck and that his left arm is broken.

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

Duffie Stone, the 14th Circuit Solicitor, said in a press release: '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'.
