ESTILL, S.C. (CBS) — Before Estill Police Officer Quincy Smith answered a service call for a possible armed robbery, he flipped on the body-camera goggles he purchased for himself over the Internet.

In the video, you see that he gets out of his patrol car and demands the man in the camouflage jacket to stop, several times.

The suspect refuses and keeps walking. The officer follows him, once he gets close enough, he senses danger.

“Take your hands out of your pocket. If you don’t stop I’m gonna taze you. I’m not playing with you. Take your hands out your pocket,” he warns the guy.

The officer gets shot 4 times, getting hit in the neck and arms.

Months later, while testifying against the man who tried to kill him, he called it the best $30 he ever spent. This is the footage, captured by Smith, that helped convict 29-year-old Malcolm Antwan Orr, of attempted murder and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.
