He may have been found not guilty of premeditated murder, but Oscar Pistorius has been found guilty of culpable homicide in the Valentine’s Day shooting of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

The Paralympian faces up to 15 years in prison, but could also walk free. His sentencing will take place on October 13.

Judge Thokozile Masipa also ruled that Pistorius was guilty of negligently firing a gun in a crowded restaurant months before the shooting. But the shamed runner was also acquitted of two other counts: discharging a firearm through a car sunroof and illegally possessing ammunition.

Despite dramatically crying upon hearing his “not guilty” ruling for murder, Pistorius showed no emotion while standing in his blue suit.

Prosecutors said they were let down that the double amputee was found guilty on only two charges.

“We are disappointed we did not secure a conviction under pre-meditated murder and also there was acquittal on the other two (gun) charges,” said Nathi Mncube for the National Prosecuting Authority.

“The matter has not been concluded yet, we are still waiting for a sentence to be imposed,” he added.

He also said that it was too early to determine whether or not the prosecution would appeal.
