Prosecutors filed charges Thursday against a 20-year-old Midvale man after two shots were fired at a car.

The man was charged with attempted criminal homicide, a second-degree felony, and use of a firearm by a restricted person, a third-degree felony.

On April 15, a woman gave a man a ride to a West Valley house, where there was a confrontation with another man, the woman's ex-boyfriend. The woman drove her vehicle around a cul-de-sac to leave, but when she drove past the house, the man who got the ride — a convicted felon, according to charges — shot a gun twice.

One of the bullets went through the driver's window into the dashboard while the other hit the driver's side molding, charges state.
