SAGINAW, Mich. - About 100 people gathered in Saginaw to pray for peace in memory of a homeless man who was fatally shot by police nearly two months ago.

Saginaw pastors were among those who gathered Friday in the same mid-Michigan shopping center parking lot where 49-year-old Milton Hall was shot multiple times by officers.

Saginaw police say Milton was wielding a knife July 1, and he'd made aggressive movements toward officers.

The officers say shooting Milton was their only choice.

The shooting about 85 miles northwest of Detroit is being investigated by Michigan State Police. reports Pastor James Glenn told gatherers that Saginaw is "the city of God."

He and others pledged to press officials for results in the investigation.

The vigil ended with chants of, "No justice, no peace."
