PRETORIA, South Africa (AP) -- A security guard who says he spoke with Oscar Pistorius soon after the fatal shooting of Reeva Steenkamp was continuing his testimony at the double-amputee athlete's murder trial on Monday.

The guard, Pieter Baba, recalled a conversation with Pistorius in the early hours of Valentine's Day last year. Baba testified Friday that Pistorius told him "everything is fine" on the telephone. Baba says Pistorius called him back moments later, didn't speak, was crying and the second call then ended.

Baba says he was responding to neighbors' reports of gunshots coming from Pistorius' home after 3 a.m. last Feb. 14. He drove with a fellow guard to Pistorius' villa and made the call from outside the house.

Pistorius' defense lawyer, Barry Roux, questioned Baba's recollection of the call.
