DETROIT — A man involved in a dispute over a tax refund check opened fire at a Detroit tax preparation business on Friday afternoon, wounding four employees.

Police say the alleged gunman was arrested running from the scene and a woman involved in the dispute turned herself in later in the day.

The shooting happened at Tax City Tax Service on the city’s east side.

Deputy Police Chief Rodney Johnson said the woman became upset when her tax refund wasn’t ready Friday and started scuffling with the guard. Johnson said the man with her pulled a gun and started shooting.

The security guard was wounded, as were three other employees.

One victim was in critical condition, while the other three were listed in serious condition.

“There were no fatalities, thank goodness,” Johnson said.

Johnson said a passerby flagged down a police officer and pointed out the suspect, who was arrested less than a block from the shooting.

Police had been looking for the woman, but Johnson said she walked into a police precinct and turned herself in Friday evening.
