SALT LAKE CITY -- A man charged with shooting a motorist on Oct. 14 waived his rights to a preliminary hearing Tuesday.

Michael Genova, 26, is charged with attempted murder and obstructing justice in connection with the shooting in South Salt Lake that left one man injured. He is scheduled to be arraigned on Jan. 29.

The shooting happened at a bus stop on 3300 South 500 East. Police allege Genova was sitting at the bus stop when a car pulled up. The driver and the man at the stop got into an argument, and then police say the shooter pulled a handgun out of a lunchbox and fired multiple times at the car, shooting the driver in the stomach.

The victim was able to drive himself to St. Marks Hospital, which is about 2 miles away.

Police found Genova a few blocks away from the scene.
