Police surprised at reports that Pistorius shooting was an accident
Police expressed "surprise" on Thursday at reports that a shooting at Paralympian Oscar Pistorius' house was an accident.
"The SA Police Service were just as surpised this morning to hear on the radio that allegations had been made that the deceased had been perceived to be a burglar," police spokeswoman Brigadier Denise Beukes said.
"We were very surprised and those allegations did not come from us."
She was briefing reporters outside Silver Woods estate in Pretoria, where model Reeva Steenkamp was shot dead in Pistorius' house in the early hours of the morning.
