The investigating officer said that unlicensed .38 handgun ammunition was found in Oscar Pistorius' house.
It was previously reported that an unlicensed handgun had been found, but this is not the case.
The officer called for Pistorius to face addition charges for possessing the ammunition, and not a gun.
