Charges have been filed against Morgan Dwayne Winger, 32. Police say on July 23rd he fired rounds into an apartment complex at 400 East 2700 South hitting a woman inside.

“[The victim] was sitting in a recliner in her friend’s apartment…when she heard gun shots and felt pain in her leg and abdomen,” court documents say.
