Today an athlete named Kevin Lerena described how Pistorius accidentally shot off a gun in a restaurant and then asked him to say he was the one who shot it. Darren Fresco passed his pistol to Pistorius. A shot went off. He said Pistorius checked to make sure everyone was alright (though in another version Lorena’s toe was grazed) then asked him to take the blame so he did. This happened about one month before Pistorius shot Reeva. The prosecution is trying to paint him as trigger-happy, and he has pleaded not guilty to another gun charge for putting a bullet through the sun-roof of a car.
The defense once again tried to convince the prosecution witnesses that what they heard were not gun shots but Pistorius breaking down the door with a bat. This is much like what was covered yesterday.
