Saginaw city officials speak out about police shooting of homeless man, Milton Hall

SAGINAW (WJRT) -

(09/07/12) - The Saginaw community is getting restless, waiting to find out if the police shooting of a homeless man was justified or not.

The shooting happened July 1 when police confronted Milton Hall in a busy parking lot.

They say he was holding a knife and threatening officers, but there have been no official answers yet.

Friday, city leaders held a press conference on the steps of city hall.

The city wants the everyone to be sure, they will be completely transparent once the investigation is complete, but it takes time.

"It's very frustrating to keep the family at bay," said Brian Booker, Milton Hall's cousin.

Booker says his family will find justice one way or another.

"Whatever the decision is moving forward, if it's not to the family's liking, we'll contact the new prosecutor," he said.

At Friday's press conference, the city said they'll be reviewing their police policies and procedures and they're conducting their own investigation along side the attorney general.

Booker and the community say they're going to hold the city to that promise.

The city manager said the investigation could be done in a week or so.
