MILLERSVILLE, Md. (CBSNewYork/AP) — An off-duty Hudson County, N.J., police detective was facing charges Sunday in what might have been a road rage shooting.
As WCBS 880’s Jim Smith reported, Joseph Walker, 40, was charged with second-degree murder and manslaughter in connection with the Saturday evening incident, which happened on shoulder of the ramp from northbound Route 3 to Interstate 97 near Millersville, Md., near Baltimore.
On Sunday night, police lights marked the highway ramp where the random meeting between drivers ended in the deadly confrontation, CBS 2’s Don Champion reported.
Investigators said it began when Joseph Harvey Jr., 36, was driving a Honda Accord, and 40-year-old Walker, a New Jersey detective, driving a minivan.
They first came into contact near Route 3 and Annapolis Road. A mile north at the interchange with Interstate 97, everything got heated.
