It will be business as usual at the Brampton Courthouse on Monday after it was rocked by a fatal shooting last week.

Peel Police Constable Mike Klarenbeek was providing security at the courthouse Friday morning when a man dressed in trench coat walked in and opened fire, wounding the 30-year police veteran before being killed by police bullets.

Peel Police said Sunday that 53-year-old Klarenbeek is out of Intensive Care Unit at Sunnybrook and continues to improve in hospital.

A spokeswoman with the province's police watchdog, which is investigating the incident, has said the man shot by police was 46-years-old and believed to be from Brampton. His family has not consented to the release of his name.

The Special Investigation's Unit's Jasbir Brar added that investigators are reviewing the actions of two officers in the incident.

It sounds as though Peel Regional Police Constable Mike Klarenbeek was closer to death than initially thought when he was gut-shot at the Brampton courthouse Friday.

54-year old Linda Hunt was sitting close to the security station when the gun shots went off and the officer went down. 

Hunt was on with NEWSTALK 1010's Moore in the Morning on Monday, saying that while she was pushing hard on his abdomen to stop the bleeding, they lost the Constable for a about a minute but then he came back.  

Hunt insists she was not a hero that everyone involved should be credited, except the bystanders...
