SAVANNAH, Ga. — A Georgia officer wearing camera glasses captured video of the moment he was shot four times at close range by a robbery suspect.

Officer Quincy Smith was called to investigate a suspicious man trying to steal groceries from a convenience store.

The suspect, 29-year-old Malcolm Antwan Orr, was on his cellphone when Smith approached him, warning him he would be hit with a stun gun if he didn’t stop.

Orr turned toward Smith and opened fire, shooting eight rounds.

Despite injuries and Smith’s pleas to the dispatcher to “tell my family I love them,” the officer survived the attack.
