Bail remains at $1 million bond for a Hudson County (N.J.) Prosecutor's Office detective charged with second degree murder and manslaughter in the death of a Maryland man in Maryland Saturday night.

Joseph Walker, 40, made his first court appearance at Annapolis District Court in Maryland this morning, where he was told bail will remain at $1 million. Walker is accused of shooting Joseph Harvey Jr., 36. during a possible road rage incident around 8:30 p.m. Saturday.

According to Maryland Police, both drivers got out of their cars following an accident in the northbound lane of Route 3 near Millersville. As Harvey began walking toward Walker's minivan, Walker said he was a police officer and shot a .45-caliber glock handgun in the direction of Harvey and a second man. Harvey was taken by ambulance to Baltimore Washington Medical Center where he later died.

Was he approaching him in a threatening manner? What is the whole story here? I pray that what I just read is not the entire tale.

Maryland doesn't have the stand your ground law. If all possible flight rather than fight.

There is definitely mor eto this story than THE MEDIA is spitting out no question why would a detective not even a plain old street cop waste this guy? I bet some heated words were exchanged and one thing led to another? My anger is Harvey was not armed and ready to defend his life ?
