A witness heard gunshots, screaming, and then more shots fired at Pistorius' home on the night Reeva Steenkamp was killed, a police officer has said.

Day two of his bail hearing in Pretoria Wednesday also heard police suggest Pistorius may flee if he is granted bail.

He denies the premeditated murder of Steenkamp, his girlfriend, saying he mistook her for an intruder.

Anchor Aaron Schachter talks with South African journalist Nastasya Tay, who's been covering the case.
