A tax refund shooting left four people seriously injured in Detroit. On March 1, USA Today reported that a fight broke out around 3:30 p.m. at Tax City Tax Service and quickly turned violent. Apparently a 27-year-old woman was upset that her tax refund wasn't ready and she got into an argument that turned physical. Shortly after, a 19-year-old man that was with her pulled out a gun and started shooting. Three people were in serious condition and a fourth was in critical condition following the shooting.

"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," reports USA Today.

The tax refund shooting was very frightening for people in the area. No one expects this sort of violence to break out over something like a tax refund but evidently the woman really wanted/needed her refund money. The fact that she was so angry about it is definitely concerning but police will undoubtedly get to the bottom of this after their investigation is complete.

The woman who ended up turning herself into police will likely be charged with assault if she hasn't been already. Police are still looking for one other woman -- a female witness. The gun used in the shooting has already been recovered by authorities.
