GAMBRILLS, Md. — Court documents reveal a witness’ account of a road rage incident that Maryland police say led to the fatal shooting of a motorist by an off-duty detective from New Jersey.
According to court documents, a witness told investigators that the confrontation started when Joseph Walker’s minivan cut off Joseph Harvey’s car on Saturday night. Harvey’s passenger, Adam Pidel, told police that Walker pointed a gun at them as the vehicles swerved at each other.
Police say when the drivers got out, Walker announced he was a police officer. Pidel says he heard several shots as he ran for cover.
Forty-year-old Walker of Eastampton, N.J., is charged with second-degree murder and manslaughter. Bail was set at $1 million bond at a review Monday.
