SC police officer Quincy Smith was shot multiple times by a suspect he was attempting to question, and the entire dramatic, shocking encounter was captured on a tiny camera in the officer's glasses.
Gunman Malcolm Orr, 29, was found guilty of attempted murder and possession a weapon in a violent crime on Tuesday.
The incident occurred when Smith was responding to a call about a man trying to snatch groceries from customers at a party store.
Smith spotted the suspect, who was walking and talking a cell phone about a block away and repeatedly ordered him to stop and take his right hand out of his pocket.
SC police officer Quincy Smith bought his own eyeglass-camera on Amazon to help record his interactions with the public during his shift.
Giving evidence at the trial, Smith described the device as the best $30 (£23) he has ever spent. Smith threatens to use his stun gun if Orr does not stop.
The officer's camera glasses, which he bought off Amazon, captured the moment he was hit and his desperate plea to an emergency dispatcher, asking them to tell his family that he loved them, as he lay bloody waiting for help.
