South African paralympian Oscar Pistorius has been arrested for the murder of his girlfriend.
Pistorius — the paralympian known as Blade Runner — is accused of shooting 30-year-old Reeva Steenkamp in the hand and head — allegedly with a 9 mm pistol found at the scene.
Pistorius, 26, had reportedly been dating Steenkamp for a few months. She was a law graduate and an aspiring model.
Pistorius — considered a national hero in South Africa — was the first double amputee to compete in the Olympics.
