Joshua Carl Henry, 38, of Salt Lake City, is charged with first-degree felony attempted murder, third-degree felony sale or transfer of a firearm to a restricted person, and a class A misdemeanor giving false personal information to a police officer.

Henry is being held in Davis County Jail on a no-bail warrant out of West Valley Justice Court on unrelated charges.
