A Philadelphia Police Department detective is on desk duty after he allegedly shot and wounded an unarmed man he thought was an armed robber Monday.

The victim, whom relatives identified as 28-year-old Joel Johnson, was a well-known panhandler, according to Philly.com. The news outlet reported that residents who live in the Kensington neighborhood, where the incident took place, said Johnson spent almost every day asking people for change.

Police said they did not find a firearm at the scene or on Johnson.

No one else was injured during the incident.
