— Oscar Pistorius was granted bail Friday, paving the way for him to be freed from custody pending his trial in the Valentine’s Day shooting death of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

Pistorius’ family members and supporters shouted “Yes!” when Chief Magistrate Desmond Nair made his decision after a near two-hour explanation of his ruling.

Nair set the bail at $113,000, with $11,300 in cash and proof that the rest is available.

The magistrate said Pistorius must hand over his passports and also turn in any other guns that he owns.

Pistorius also cannot leave the district of Pretoria without the permission of his probation officer, Nair said.

The double-amputee Olympian’s next court appearance was set for June 4.

The magistrate also ruled that he could not return to his home, where the killing of Steenkamp occurred.
