SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

A national organization will continue fighting for justice after the shooting death of a homeless man.

The National Action Network, led by the Rev. Al Sharpton, will be back in the city of Saginaw to hold a major demonstration this Saturday.

It's in response to the shooting death of 49-year-old Milton Hall.

Six Saginaw police officers shot and killed Hall back in July at the Riverview Plaza shopping center. At the time Hall was said to be armed with a knife and acting in a threatening way.

The Michigan chapter of N.A.N. also held a press conference Monday morning, and a local group is also calling out for justice in the case.

Concerned Citizens of Saginaw plans to ask federal authorities to continue examining the case.

The group will officially announce their request at the Riverview Plaza on Tuesday morning.

Local investigators have already closed the investigation last week and announced that only three officers would be penalized for their involvement in Hall's shooting.
