Pictures and a video have emerged of Oscar Pistorius demonstrating his prowess at a gun range just months before he killed his girlfriend on Valentine’s Day.

Sky News on Friday broadcast the video of the paralympic athlete firing a shotgun and a pistol at a firing range. He fires at a watermelon that explodes much to the delight of onlookers.

A voice shows Pistorius wearing sunglasses and gun range headphones alongside rugby player Francois Hougaard. In the video a voice is heard saying, “It’s a lot softer than brain but… it’s like a zombie stopper,” the man said.

It is not clear when the video was taken.

Pistorius is accused of murdering Steenkamp on February 14 last year. His murder trial begins in the High Court in Pretoria on Monday and is expected to run until March 20.
