TORONTO -- The fact that a mystery woman -- initially thought to be a nurse -- dove in to save a wounded police officer's life Friday was already the stuff of movies.

The plot has thickened.

Not only does it appear that the mystery heroine who helped save Const. Mike Klarenbeek is no nurse, she was in Brampton, Ont., court on pot possession charges.

Of course, no one looked for credentials in the seconds after a gunman seriously wounded the officer. Police shot and killed the gunman in the courthouse on Hurontario St., south of Steeles Ave.

It appears the mystery woman who intervened is Linda Hunt.
