DETROIT -- Four people were shot Friday at a tax preparation office on Detroit's east side after a dispute over a refund check.

Police said one man has been arrested. Authorities are also seeking at least one woman in the Friday afternoon shooting that followed a fight with a security guard inside the business.

Johnson said the woman scuffled with the guard. The man with her pulled a gun and started shooting.

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

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