Paralympian athlete Oscar Pistorius allegedly accidentally shot dead his girlfriend at his house in Pretoria.

The 26-year-old, has been arrested for the shooting.

"I can confirm to you that a 26-year-old suspect will be appearing in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court this afternoon following a shooting at Oscar Pistorius' house," spokeswoman Lt-Col Katlego Mogale said.

"Paramedics declared the woman dead on the scene and police proceeded with their investigation. The woman sustained wounds to her head and the upper body," spokeswoman Lt-Col Katlego Mogale said.

Mogale would not confirm an earlier news report that Pistorius was the shooter.

The woman shot dead  had been identified as model Reeva Steenkamp, 30.

Shiri Reouveni, of Steenkamp's PR agency, said they had been told it was Steenkamp who had been shot, but did not want to say more.

Asked if she could confirm if it was Steenkamp who was shot, she said: "Yes".

Mogale said police were called following a shooting at a townhouse complex in Silverlakes.

"When police arrived they found the paramedics attending to the woman. The paramedics declared the woman dead on the scene and police proceeded with their investigation of the scene."

A 9mm pistol was recovered.

The man has been taken into custody and a case of murder was being investigated.

skwama, strange thing is, seems like the black racists are kind of not too upset with this incident. Don't know if it is because he's a celeb, or because of his legs or what. Any ideas?

TupacAmaru, the case was not dismissed. He was found not guilty, which is a totally different thing altogether.

They do, however, give you the very helpful advice that, in the event of an emergency, you should put your head between your knees and kiss your arse goodbye! Logic at its finest!

the recoil would have ensured that the bullets aren't in the exact same place. Even if he did a double tap on the trigger with lightening speed, the recoil would still have moved the barrel slightly.

The new story is that she "sustained wounds to her head and the upper body". The media isn't allowed into the complex and the cops aren't talking (by the sounds of things) so details are very sketchy

Yeah I own a gun, and I aim for the head all the time, making sure that if I pull my trigger, you meet your maker.
