The Peel Regional Police Constable who was shot inside a courthouse in Brampton a week ago, is going home.

Constable Mike Klarenbeek was shot in the abdomen while on duty at the A Grenville and William Davis Court in Brampton on Friday, March 28th.

The family has declined requests for interviews but sent out a statement:

Mike's wife, Lynn, wished to have the following statement sent out on behalf of the family:
"My family and I are very thankful that Mike is able to come home today. Our police family has been very supportive and have taken very good care of us. Mike and I have both been overwhelmed by the outpouring of support. It has been unbelievable. We would like to thank everyone, including the media, for all of the support. We particularly would like to thank the doctors and nurses at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre and all those who were responsible for providing excellent medical care to Mike over the past week. We have released a picture of Mike and he wants everyone to know how thankful and lucky he feels.

It is hard to begin to thank so many people, but in due time we will be able to. Today Mike is coming home to continue his recovery and we ask that you give him some privacy to do so."

Peel Police spokesperson Matt Small told Newstalk1010, "It was a tough situation, and our family here at Peel Police pulled together, and we're just thankful at the outcome."

45 year old Sunni Bassi from Brampton was shot and killed in the exchange of bullets inside the court, but there's been no official word on a possible motive.

There have been several reports though, that suggest Bassi was targeting someone who was at the courthouse on Hurontario that day.
