'Blade Runner' Oscar Pistorius arrested after his girlfriend is shot dead at his home

South African Olympic and Paralympic track star Oscar Pistorius, around 4am this morning shot dead his model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, at his home in Pretoria. Friends of Oscar think its a Valentine's Day surprise gone wrong. Oscar, 26 and Reeva, 30 (pictured together above), have been dating for many months. Reeve was shot several times in the head, chest and arm.

Oscar, known as the “Blade Runner” for his racing prosthetics and also dubbed 'the fastest man on no-legs', has been charged with murder and is currently in police custody. He is believed to have told police he thought she was an intruder.

Police said they found a 9mm pistol at the scene and will charge the athlete to court later today.

Pistorius, who races wearing carbon fibre prosthetic blades after he was born without a fibula in both legs, was the first double amputee to run in the Olympics and reached the 400 semi-finals in London 2012.

    There was speculation in the local media that Pistorius may have mistaken her for a burglar and the shooting could have been a result of a Valentine's Day surprise gone wrong. Local media suggested that Steenkamp may have been trying to surprise her boyfriend in his home on the heavily guarded compound and had been mistaken for an intruder. But the question here now is that would you shoot an intruder four times in the head and the arm?

    This story is not right at all. So, after the first shot, he didn't recognise his girlfriend, and just kept shooting? He shot her at lest 3 times - head, chest and arm! Didn't she cry out? Didn't he recognise her voice or her smell when she woke him up? Na mehn, not right at all. Anyway, I pray the truth prevails.

    He doesn't have a leg to stand on. 2 shots in the head?

    Seriously, I've always wondered what Nigeria would be like if people had guns and were self-armed. Would it help to bring down crime or would it be total chaos?

    Point well made! Moreover, you should only shoot someone if your life is in danger! I wonder if she was also pointing a gun at him.....he is guilty end of story.

    I dont buy the valentine's surprise theory! Except if that 9mm pistol was semi-automatic, how do you pull the trigger 4 times without realizing the person you are shooting is your girlfriend? If it was dark, and he could not see his gal, how did he manage to stay on target with the bullets? Hmmmn.

    Uh, 1st of all;
    - How did the woman cause the downfall of the man? That's absolute nonsense talk. The man's house is filled with armed security and he still felt the need to shoot.

    Secondly,
    - Perfect gift for valentine?! Are you a FUCKING ILLITERATE! Gosh.

    This is just sad, you don't shoot anyone because of your ASSUMPTIONS! May God help us all.

    U r vry correct dear, after d first shot she certainly must hav cried out, screamd if u say. And d dude stil went ahead to shoot her severally on d head??? Its a fact dat head shots are d hardest, so he must hav gotten vry close to her to pump her head full of lead. This dude murdered his girlfriend, maybe bcos of a misunderstanding... Vry cruel legless prick

    More like they had a serious row. The Girlfriend probably found out he was on drugs and threatened to expose him. I don't buy the intruder excuse at all! Besides South African Police confirmed that there were already reports of domestic Violence at that Address before this current incident occurred.

    A couple of months ago, Reeva Steenkamp claimed Oscar threatened to break both of her legs during an argument but she never pressed charges on him.

    During an interview last year, he stated that "sometimes success goes into your head" and he boasted that he had had a lot of gfs but they never stayed cos he was a difficult person to live with. Those were his own words. Now this gorgeous girl with an awesome future is gone. She was on the covers of FHM, a successful model, a Law undergraduate and a very friendly girl. May her soul RIP....Amen!

    U can call d guy legless all u want, all he has done it called snapped. A young man falls helplessly in love wit a beautiful model, d problem is she dares not try to leave. There are consequences. He is a scorp. They love hard and hate hard no inbetweens. Dominates, manipulates, etc. Dey are deadly. Its always best to stay away from Dem. I have learnt my own lesson. She didn't leave to tell her tale.
