Stipp describes the screams he heard. He says it sounded like the woman was "scared out of her mind."
And we're back in session.
Court should be back momentarily. Dr. Johan Stipp is on the stand, he's being questioned by state advocate Gerrie Nel. Stipp lives near Oscar Pistorius' house and provided medical attention to Reeva Steenkamp after she'd been shot. As Stipp described the wounds to Steenkamp's body, Pistorius broke down in tears.
Nel asks to take lunch, the request is granted.
Stipp says he heard a man yelling for help. He heard three more loud bangs which he thought were more shots. He was concerned that bullets would be coming their way. Stipp says the three bangs at the end were quick.
Stipp says they had both balcony doors open because it was a hot night. They have two balconies off their bedroom - one large and one small. The larger one faces toward Pistorius' house.
Stipp maintains that the house lights were on at the time of the shooting.
He's also asking about Stipp's experience with guns. Stipp was in the arm. He's had some weapons training.
Nel is going through Pistorius' version of events.
Stipp gave a statement to Captain van Aardt.
Stipp thought that Mr. Stander would tell the police to get in contact with him but no one did. He thought that was strange. The next day he spoke to the security estate manager. He asked for the number of a police officer to call so that he could give a statement.
At 4:17 a.m. Mr. Stander called Stipp saying that Pistorius' lawyers might be in touch with him.
Mr. Stander's wife showed up and in the course of conversation told Stipp that she hoped the incident didn't get out to the papers.
Stipp says Pistorius stayed by Steenkamp's side while they waited for an ambulance. Stipp saw Pistorius go upstairs. He asked Mr. Stander if he knew where the gun was, afraid that Pistorius was going to hurt himself. A few minutes later Pistorius returned down the stairs.
Pistorius was praying at the time saying "please let her live."
Pistorius now covering his ears. The doctor is talking about Steenkamp's brain tissue.
Pistorius has his head in his hands as the doctor details what Steenkamp's body looked like.
The judge and assessors are being shown a photograph. It's possibly of Steenkamp's body. The photo isn't being shown on the TV monitors. Stipp identifies the body as the woman he tried to assist.
A man motioned for Stipp to come towards the door. Stipp identified himself as a doctor and asked if he could help. He was told yes and directed to Reeva Steenkamp's body. She was lying on her back on the floor.
Stipp got dressed and went to ask the security guard house if it was safe. He was told yes, Mr. Stander was there. He drove towards the house. He didn't know who lived there at the time.
Stipp tried to call the security company for his neighborhood but no one answered. He then called the South African version of 911 but he got "funny tone" perhaps because the number was out of order. As he was figuring out who to call next, he heard three loud bangs. He thought they were more shots and went inside.
Stipp stood on his balcony and heard a woman screaming. He tried to see which house it was coming from. One house opposite his house had "all the lights on." He saw the light on in the bathroom window.
There's a direct line of sight from Stipp's bedroom to Pistorius' bathroom.
Stipp is being shown different aerial photographs of the neighborhood. Then he's shown a close up of Pistorius' house zoomed in to the bathroom window.
An aerial photograph of the neighborhood is shown on a television screen. Stipp identifies his house. Pistorius is looking at the TV screen that's in front of him with the same photograph.
On the night Reeva Steenkamp died, Stipp was at home with his wife, three kids and domestic servant. They went to bed around 10:30 p.m.
Stipp is a radiologist in Pretoria. He lives in Silver Woods Estate, across from Silver Lakes. He doesn't know Oscar Pistorius.
Stipp will be testifying in English. He's being sworn in.
Johan Stipp is the next witness. He doesn't want to be on camera.
Nel: If you wanted to incriminate the accused unfairly, what would you have done with the paragraph about the shots?
Johnson says he knew there were four shots when he gave his statement because he'd heard so at the bail hearing. He didn't put that in his statement because he initially thought there were four or five shots.
Nel has no more questions, Mr. Johnson is excused.
As Johnson details his statement, Oscar Pistorius rubs his eyes with one hand and holds his head when Johnson talks about Reeva Steenkamp screaming.
Nel is running through the day after the shooting, asking when Johnson spoke to his wife and what they spoke about.
