Community cries out with questions after homeless man police shooting

Posted: Updated:
SAGINAW (WJRT) -

(08/16/12) - A community is demanding answers surrounding the shooting of a Saginaw homeless man.

It's been more than six weeks since police shot and killed Milton Hall, and we still haven't seen any information come from the investigation.

Thursday, a Saginaw sorority alumnae chapter held a town hall meeting to give the community a chance to voice their questions.

Because there have been virtually no answers, the community is getting anxious.

They're questioning the city's leadership, both before and after this shooting.

Six officers fired 46 rounds at Hall, killing him in a busy Saginaw plaza.

Police say he was holding a knife, and witnesses say Hall's hands were in the air when police shot at him. That's leaving the public with questions.

"It just seems there are some questions to be answered, you know, we deserve to know something better than what we had," said Ida C. Steward of Saginaw.

Thursday evening, the Saginaw Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority brought in the community to speak out and ask those questions.

City council can't say much, but one councilman wants to see some results, and soon.

"I'm not satisfied with the State Attorney General investigation, I won't settle for anything, except a federal investigation, so I'm trying to be patient and we're waiting, the community is restless and we need answers," said Norman Braddock, Saginaw city councilperson.

It could be some time before we have answers, the Saginaw County Prosecutor isn't commenting, saying this is still under investigation by an independent police agency, state police and the State Attorney General.
