The Rev. Al Sharpton's National Action Network says it will hold a rally in Saginaw Saturday in response to the fatal shooting of a homeless, mentally ill man in a parking lot this summer.

Police say 49-year-old Milton Hall refused to drop a knife, and six officers fired 46 shots at him, hitting him 11 times July 1.

A Saginaw police supervisor has been demoted and two officers disciplined for their roles in Hall's death. Prosecutors and state officials have said officers wouldn't face criminal charges.

According to WNEM-TV, the National Action Network said Monday it will continue fighting for justice in Hall's killing and plans a demonstration on Saturday.

In addition, a group called Concerned Citizens of Saginaw plans to ask federal authorities to continue examining the case.
