PRETORIA, South Africa (AP) - A security guard working in Oscar Pistorius' gated community says the athlete told him everything was "fine" when he called to investigate neighbors' reports of gunshots on the night Reeva Steenkamp was killed.

Pieter Baba, who drove with another guard and made a phone call to Pistorius from outside the Olympian's villa in the pre-dawn hours of Feb. 14 last year, testified Friday: "that's when Mr. Pistorius said to me everything is fine."

Baba said Pistorius called him back but was crying, didn't say anything and the line "went off."

Baba said he told a fellow security guard: "not everything was in order as Mr. Pistorius was telling me."

Pistorius is charged with murder. He says he shot Steenkamp by mistake, thinking she was an intruder.
