Johannesburg – Paralympic athlete Oscar Pistorius allegedly shot and killed his girlfriend in the early hours of Thursday morning, apparently after thinking she was an intruder.
The police’s Captain Sarah Mcira confirmed the woman had been shot in the head and arm.
She died at the scene.
Pistorius is apparently in police custody.
Unconfirmed reports from residents living in the area say the woman was shot four times but we will wait for official confirmation.
It is really a sad day in the history of a man that became a role model for so many people.
