The video — which was captured with a camera that Smith bought himself and placed on his eyeglasses — shows him exiting his squad car and politely asking Orr, who is on his cellphone, to stop. “Come here, man. Come here for a second,” Smith says. As he gets closer to Orr, Smith notices that he has his hand in his pocket as if he’s carrying a weapon. “Take your hands out your pocket!” Smith yells. “If you don’t stop, I’m gonna tase you. I’m not playing with you!” Orr takes a few more steps before finally revealing the weapon — a 9mm handgun — and opening fire.
