(USA TODAY) Four people were injured in a shooting Friday at a tax business on Detroit's east side after a dispute broke out over a refund.

Police arrested the shooting suspect near the scene, and a second person, wanted for allegedly assaulting a security guard, turned herself in to police Friday evening.

The shooting happened just after 3:30 p.m. at Tax City Tax Service in a strip mall on the 7400 block of Gratiot. Three people are in serious condition and a fourth is in critical condition.

According to police, a 27-year-old female customer became upset because her tax refund wasn't ready. A physical altercation broke out between her and a security guard. A 19-year-old man who accompanied the woman to the store pulled out a handgun and started firing, police said.

"She was a disgruntled customer about her refund check," Third Deputy Chief Rodney Johnson said.

Chief James Craig said the shooting started inside and continued outside. Johnson said the security guard was among the victims.

Johnson said a passerby flagged down a police officer and pointed out the suspect, who was arrested less than a block from the scene. Officers recovered the handgun used in the shooting, he said.

The woman turned herself in at 6:30 p.m. at the city's 9th Precinct, Johnson said.

Authorities also are looking for another woman who was at the scene and may have been a witness.
