LAWRENCE, Ind. -- A dispute over a tax return is likely what led to a fatal shooting at a tax prep business, according to police. 

Police say Antonio Bertram, 25, walked into the business near 42nd Street and Franklin Road with two firearms and shouted "What's up?" to the tax prep employee inside. The employee was also armed with a handgun and fired two shots at Bertram, striking him once in the chest. 

Bertram left the office and fired shots outside before getting into his vehicle, according to police. He was found unconscious a short time later.
