VOICE-OVER SCRIPT:

THE DOUBLE-AMPUTEE OLYMPIAN KNOWN AS THE 'BLADE RUNNER' IS UNDER ARREST.

OSCAR PISTORIUS WAS ARRESTED IN PRETORIA, SOUTH AFRICA ON THURSDAY, MORNING, AFTER A 30-YEAR-OLD WOMAN WAS SHOT DEAD AT HIS HOME.

SOUTH AFRICAN POLICE SAY THEY WERE CALLED TO THE OLYMPIC ATHLETE'S HOME, AND FOUND PARAMEDICS THERE TREATING THE WOMAN FOR AN UNSPECIFIED NUMBER OF GUNSHOT WOUNDS.

THE WOMAN DIED AT THE SCENE.

OFFICERS ALSO FOUND A NINE-MILIMETER PISTOL.

PISTORIUS IS EXPECTED TO APPEAR IN COURT ON THURSDAY.

SEVERAL SOUTH AFRICAN MEDIA MEDIA OUTLETS ARE REPORTING THAT THE WOMAN WAS PISTORIUS' GIRLFRIEND.

HOWEVER, POLICE ARE NOT CLARIFYING THE WOMAN'S RELATIONSHIP TO PISTORIUS.

PISTORIUS MADE HISTORY IN LONDON LAST YEAR, AS THE FIRST DOUBLE-AMPUTEE TRACK ATHLETE TO COMPETE IN THE OLYMPICS.

BOTH OF HIS LEGS WERE AMPUTATED BELOW THE KNEE WHEN HE WAS A BABY.
