A 19-year-old man was charged today with numerous felonies after prosecutors say he shot four people inside a tax-preparation office in Detroit on Friday.
Xzavier Tyrone Mazyck, of Detroit, is accused of beating a female tax preparer because his friend’s refund wasn’t ready at Tax City at 7455 Gratiot. When security tried to intervene, Mazyck opened fire on the guard and shot two women in the office, according to Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy. A fourth person was grazed with a bullet.
The victims are expected to recover.
Mazyck was charged today with nine counts of assault with intent to murder, nine counts of assault with intent to do great bodily harm, nine counts of felonious assault, a count of carrying a concealed weapon, discharge of a firearm in an occupied building and felony firearm.
