South African athlete Oscar Pistorius fired a gun through a car sun roof after an altercation with a police officer, a court has heard.

Giving evidence at Mr Pistorius' murder trial in Pretoria, Mr Pistorius' ex-girlfriend Samantha Taylor also gave details about the couple's relationship.

She claims it ended when he "cheated" on her with model Reeva Steenkamp- whom Mr Pistorius says he shot dead after mistaking her for an intruder.

Ms Taylor was also asked whether Mr Pistorius ever sounded like a woman when he "screamed" at her. Mr Pistorius' defence team claim witnesses mistook Mr Pistorius' screams for Ms Steenkamp's on the night she died.
