ABC News has reported that one month before Pistorius shot and killed his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in January 2013, that the South African athlete accidentally fired a gun in a crowded restaurant last year and then asked a friend to take the blame, according to testimony by professional boxer Kenin Lerena, who was a surprise witness at Oscar Pistorius’ murder trial.
