South African media are reporting the incident happened at his Silver Lakes home at around 4am on Thursday morning.
Captain Sarah Mcira confirmed to a South African website that Pistorius’s girlfriend was shot in the head and arm and died at the scene.
Pistorius, 26, dubbed Blade Runner for the blade-like prosthetics he wears for his double under-knee amputation, is reportedly in police custody.
She was reportedly not shot once, not twice, not thrice...but four times.
**Update, he's been charged with murder. A police spokesperson says there have been 'other incidents' at the Pistorious home.
