Paralympic star Oscar Pistorius shoots girlfriend

South African paralympic star Oscar Pistorius is being questioned by South African police for shooting his girlfriend, domestic media said.

Johannesburg's Talk Radio 702 said Pistorius was understood to have shot his girlfriend in the head and arm, although the circumstances surrounding the incident were unclear. He may have mistaken her for a burglar, the radio report said.

The Afrikaans-language Beeld newspaper said on its website that Pistorius’ girlfriend was dead.
