Pistorius’ character questioned over gun incident

PRETORIA — A month before he fatally shot his girlfriend, Oscar Pistorius cajoled a friend into taking the blame when a gun was accidentally fired under the Johannesburg restaurant table where he and other friends were sitting, according to testimony yesterday in the double-amputee runner’s murder trial.

“Just say it was you. I don’t want any tension around me,” witness Kevin Lerena remembered Pistorius telling a friend. “There’s too much media hype around me.”

The testimony by Lerena, a boxer, raises questions about the character of a man who insists he accidentally killed Reeva Steenkamp in his home in the early hours of February 14 last year.
