An off-duty New Jersey police officer has been charged with second-degree murder and manslaughter in Anne Arundel County.

Investigators say 40-year-old Joseph Walker, a detective from Eastampton, N.J. fatally shot 36-year-old Joseph Harvey during an apparent road rage incident near Millersville, Md.

The incident happened Saturday night around 8:30, after the victim's car and the suspect's minivan came into contact on Route 3.

Both vehicles parked on the shoulder, and the victim approached Detective Walker who identified himself as such, according to court documents. Walker alleges that Harvey continued approaching in an aggressive manner and so he fired a pistol in his direction killing him.

Walker was traveling in Maryland with his wife and children.
