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 shooting happened after a woman 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.
