Man Arrested After Firing At Lyft Driver In Coral Gables

A man is facing multiple charges after allegedly firing a gun at a Lyft driver in Coral Gables.

The unidentified victim and driver said the incident took place around 5 a.m. Saturday after he dropped off a female passenger at a home along 1200 block of Southwest 138th Avenue.

The Lyft driver said a man then suddenly appeared from behind another car and stood in front of his vehicle.

An arrest affidavit says the man began screaming and making gestures at the driver all while pointing a gun in his direction.

Thirty-year-old Jason Schonnevald shot the gun, but no injuries were reported.

Schonnevald, was apprehended by police around one hour later.

According to statements made in a Miami-Dade bond court, Schonnevald was thought to be in some kind of relationship with the female passenger that was dropped off, and that he may have mistaken the driver for somebody else.

Schonnevald is now facing charges for aggravated assault and for discharging a firearm in public.
