    A Miami-Dade Police officer who allegedly shot at a Miami-Dade Corrections officer over a road rage incident turned himself in Tuesday and was booked on multiple charges.

    Jonathan Lang, 42, surrendered to police and now faces charges of discharging a firearm from a vehicle, aggravated assault with a firearm, and tampering with physical evidence.

    Lang’s story started when corrections officer Georgina Illa said a driver in a white car cut her off on the Turnpike near Southwest 153rd Street. Illa said as she went to pass the car, someone threw out a cup of some liquid and then pulled out a gun and shot.

    The bullet went through Illa’s taillight, through her trunk, and then lodged in the rear seat of the car. Illa said she flagged down an officer driving nearby, who then pulled the suspect’s car over. Illa said she also stopped and that’s when one of the officers on the scene told her a Miami-Dade Police Officer fired his gun.
