4 shot in Detroit after fight over tax refund

Posted: Updated:

A man who authorities say opened fire at a Detroit tax preparation business is facing charges including assault with intent to commit murder.

The Wayne County prosecutor's office says 19-year-old Xzavier Tyrone Mazyck faces nine counts of assault with intent to murder, nine counts of assault with intent to do great bodily harm and other charges.

Mazyck is due in court Monday. The prosecutor's office says it's not aware whether he has a lawyer.

Four employees at a tax preparation office on Detroit's east side were wounded in the shooting after a dispute over a refund check.

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 Mazyck pulled a gun and started shooting.

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