It has been reported by several news sites this morning that Olympic amputee, Oscar Pistorius has shot and killed his girlfriend in a misunderstanding.
The incident happened at 4am this morning in his Silver Lake house. Pistorius thought his girlfriend was a burglar and shot her in the head and arm. Reports say that she died on the spot.

There have been several reports that the victim is model Reeva Steenkamp.
