Saginaw's city manager says three police officers are being disciplined for their roles in the fatal shooting of a homeless mental patient in a parking lot.

Prosecutors have cleared all officers of criminal action in the July 1 killing of 49-year-old Milton Hall.

Police say Hall refused to drop a knife and six officers fired 46 shots at him, hitting him 11 times.

The Revs. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton and U.S. Rep. John Conyers have protested the killing.

City Manager Darnell Earley said Thursday that a task force has finished its review of the shooting.

Earley says the three officers violated Saginaw police policies. He says acting police chief Brian Lipe recommended the discipline.

Earley didn't reveal details of the punishment. He scheduled a news conference 11 a.m. Friday.
