The Province's Special Investigations Unit has revealed the name of the man shot to death in an exchange of bullets with Peel Police inside a courthouse in Brampton.
The shots were fired on Friday morning near the security area on the ground floor of the A. Grenville and William Davis Courthouse on Hurontario Street.
The shooter has been identified as 45 year old Charnjit Singh Bassi of Brampton (photo attached to the story).
There's still no word on what led to him opening fire on officers.
It was during that exchange, that Peel Police Constable Mike Klarenbeek was shot in the abdomen. He continues to recover in hospital.
The 53 year old veteran of the force was originally sent to Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto and was kept in intensive care. He's since been moved out of intensive care, where he continues to recover.
