Oscar Pistorius

SHOTS, SCREAMS

When Oscar Pistorius gunned down girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, she began screaming -- presumably in pain and horror -- and he continued shooting ... this according to a prosecution witness. 

As the bail hearing resumed Wednesday, prosecutors revealed a statement from a witness who claims he heard gunshots, went to his balcony and saw the light was on. He then heard a female screaming two or three times ... then more gunshots.

If true ... it's devastating for Pistorius, who claims the room was pitch black when he began firing, never realizing he was shooting at his girlfriend. If the lights were on and he heard Steenkamp's screams but kept on shooting -- it blows his intruder defense sky high.

Prosecutors also say they have a witness who says there was "non-stop talking like fighting" between 2 and 3 AM ... shortly before the shooting. Pistorius claims there was no argument before the killing.

And there's this ... the first officer to arrive at the scene says when he got there, a lawyer and Pistorius' brother were already present.

An officer testified the bullets were "fired down," which contradicts Pistorius' story that he was not wearing his prosthetic legs when he began shooting.

One thing in Pistorius' favor -- the chief investigating officer was grilled like a cheeseburger on cross-examination and he reportedly did not do a very good job.

Just my opinion, but I think it's clear to see he straight up murdered his sweetheart. It's a damn shame too. Not only was she a beautiful woman but sounds like she was a very good hearted person too. We need more people like her ON this world and more people like him IN the earth

This guy is only in love with himself and in his world he can do no wrong. Sad for the world to loose such a loving, charitable and beautiful woman to this black hearted imposter of a man!

Pistorius rhymes with notorious.
(Jus' sayin'.)
He's just another psycho-entitled famous person!!!
And his version of events is ludicrous.
*yawn*
*eyeroll*
*humph*
The SA Magistrate better get this verdict RIGHT!!!
(Thank God the neighbors heard fighting, screaming, and gunshots. The cops were even there before the murder.)

wow TMZ you only mentioned the things that would damage Oscar but no mention of any of the facts the defense disproved with ease, like the fact the copper being questioned admitted that he couldn't say that what Oscar said was not the truth or the fact the witness was either 300 or 600 meters away and the best part was the fact Oscar called for help but the police didn't check all the phones so just said he didn't call for help.

Who knows what is and isn't true. There have been many unsubstantiated claims written by so-called journalists that have since been dropped or disputed since this happened.

As I was saying yesterday about this killer he deserves a lifetime punishment in a jail cell and that is all. Too bad it's not possible to plaster the walls around him with pictures of Reeva Steenkampe so he faces her death every day of his life.

Those legs should be repossessed. He deserves to live the life of the slug he is, in jail, until the day he dies.

If his room was "pitch black" how is it that he hit her so many times?

Everyone on here are quick to judge and some are clear idiots who just want to condemn Oscar before a trial has even taken place, those sort of people are the worst kind and clearly don't care about the truth.

Hmm!!!....How did he reach the gun? if the room was dark?...How did he manage to shot her 4 times? How did he reach the phone to call his brother and lawyer?....F!cking bastard.

What gets me is what has been reported before, he gets up to close the balcony door (I would have noticed my gf in bed at that point)and as he's walking back hears noises coming from the bathroom, he reaches under his bed for the gun (again doesn't notice his gf is not in bed?) I would at least woken her up to let her know someone was in the house... then he shoots at the bathroom door. Too many things wrong with this.
