4 shot in Detroit after fight over tax refund

DETROIT (AP) - Four employees at a tax preparation office on Detroit's east side have been wounded in a shooting after a dispute over a refund check.

Police say the alleged gunman has been arrested. And a woman involved in the dispute has turned herself into police.

The shooting was reported shortly after 3:30 p.m. Friday at Tax City Tax Service.

Deputy Police Chief Rodney Johnson said the woman being sought became upset when her tax refund wasn't ready yet.

Johnson says the woman scuffled with a security guard. He says the man with her pulled a gun and started shooting.

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