FOX 66 News at Ten
The Rev. Al Sharpton's National Action Network says it's calling off a rally this weekend in Saginaw that was to be held in response to the fatal shooting of a homeless, mentally ill man in a parking lot this summer.
Instead, The Saginaw News reports (http://bit.ly/P6Lf6H) a prayer vigil will take place Saturday at Riverview Plaza.
National Action Network Saginaw Chapter President Cervin Merrill says the planned march will be rescheduled to accommodate Sharpton's schedule.
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 won't face criminal charges.
