Attempted murder. If you or any other reader is ever interested in finding out what a Penal Code section means, you can always do a quick Google search. It is usually an easy and quick means of finding the answer, or viewing the text of a statute. (Note: obviously, the advice of an attorney is always the better option if you have the means to speak with one, or the time to post on Avvo.)
