Oscar Pistorius shooting

See all the latest pictures as the murder case against Oscar Pistorius unfolds.

Johannesburg - Oscar Pistorius' lawyer said on Thursday his client was emotional, but holding up, after his arrest in connection with the shooting of his girlfriend at his Pretoria home.

His lawyer Kenny Oldwage told reporters at the Boschkop police station east of Pretoria that Pistorius would appear in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Friday.

"We will proceed with the bail application.

Asked how Pistorius was doing, Oldwage said: "He is emotional, but he is keeping up (sic)."

Pistorius' girlfriend, model Reeva Steenkamp, was shot dead in his Silverwood Estate house in the early hours on Thursday.

Earlier, Pistorius was escorted to a holding cell at the police station, before being held at an undisclosed location.

He was still wearing the grey, hooded tracksuit top he had on when he was taken from his house by the police.
