Shirtless, shell-shocked and drenched in blood: Court is shown dramatic photos of Pistorius moments after he shot his girlfriend

Bare-chested with blood drenched all over his shorts and prosthetic legs, these dramatic images show a shell-shocked Oscar Pistorius moments after he killed his girlfriend.
The first police officers on the scene found the Paralympian pacing around in a 'very emotional state' and a grisly trail of blood that ran throughout the house.
The images were taken by police photographers in the garage in the aftermath of the shooting in the early hours of Valentine's Day last year.

In one, the muscled Olympic athlete, who is shirtless, is standing facing the camera wearing his prosthetics.
There are blood stains up to the knees of his limbs and his shorts are also bloodied, but his naked chest appears to be clean.
A second photograph shows Pistorius from the waist up and from the left side, also showing blood on his shorts and parts of his body, with a tattoo visible on his back.
The court was guided through the images - and other graphic scenes including the blood-spattered toilet where Miss Steenkamp was shot - by former police colonel Schoombie van Rensburg arrived at the house around 40 minutes after the shooting.
Mr van Rensburg, the former commander at a police station close to Pistorius's home, said he did not arrest Pistorius immediately after discovering Miss Steenkamp had been shot dead, but did warn him to remain at the house.
'I told him I observed him as a suspect at that stage,' Mr van Rensburg said.
'I warned him of his rights. I said to him I wasn't arresting him at that stage... I requested him to remain present at all times at the scene.'
A short time later, Mr van Rensburg said the runner's brother Carl, sister Aimee and a lawyer arrived at the house.

The prosecution says Pistorius intentionally killed MIss Steenkamp after a loud argument and then tried to cover it up by saying he thought the 29-year-old model was a dangerous intruder.
Pistorius, 27, maintains the killing was an accident and has pleaded not guilty to all charges against him.
During the investigation in the bathroom, Mr van Rensburg also said that he turned around at one point to see that the firearms expert had handled the gun Pistorius used to kill Miss Steenkamp and taken the magazine out of the weapon without using gloves.
'I asked him "what are you doing?",' Mr van Rensburg testified.
The officer realised his error, apologised, put the magazine back in the gun and laid it on the mat where it was on the floor, Mr van Rensburg said.
He then took the gloves out of his chest pocket, and again picked up the gun, according to Mr van Rensburg.
'I was very angry,' he said.
Mr van Rensburg also testified today about eight expensive watches that were found in a blood-spattered box in the bedroom upstairs, saying he warned fellow officers that they should be monitored closely because they could be tempting to anyone moving through the crime scene.
Pistorius's sister asked if she could take one of the watches, leaving seven in place, he said.
But Mr van Rensburg said another went missing while he was out of the room, prompting him to order the frisking of all the police forensic experts on the scene, as well as a search of their bags and vehicles, and the entire house.
Mr van Rensburg, who recalled that one of the officers had estimated the cost of one watch at close to $10,000, said he then opened a case of theft after the watch was not found.
Later, he said, Pistorius's brother, Carl, asked if he could take the watches. Mr van Rensburg said he would instead hand the watches directly to Oscar Pistorius, but without the box, which was still being analysed.
While doing so, he asked Pistorius to inform him if anything else went missing, but nothing else was reported stolen.
