Paralympian Oscar Pistorius called a friend shortly after his girlfriend was shot and said "I’ve killed my baba", reports the Sunday People.
Justin Divaris, who introduced Pistorius to Reeva Steenkamp, told the newspaper: “Oscar called me at 3.55am saying that Reeva had been shot.
“I said to him, ‘What are you talking about? I don’t understand you?’ He then repeated himself – ‘There has been a terrible accident, I shot Reeva’."
Divaris said that, by the time he reached the scene, Pistorius was being detained by police.
“He was totally incoherent and just kept saying, ‘My baba, I’ve killed my baba. God take me away’."
Pistorius will concentrate on defending himself against allegations that he murdered his model girlfriend on Valentine's morning.
The South African press say the weapon is a key piece of police evidence, but Pistorius' family said the death is a 'tragic accident.'
The family and management of Oscar Pistorius have released a statement disputing the murder charge against him 'in the strongest terms'.
