Friends and family of a Yamatji woman shot by police overnight have gathered outside the Geraldton Regional Aboriginal Medical Service and the local police station protesting her death.

Joyce Clarke, 29, was carrying a knife when she was shot by a police officer on Petchell Street in Karloo in Western Australia about 6.15pm on Tuesday.

She later died at the Geraldton Regional Hospital, where her friends and family gathered on Wednesday morning for a "meeting" to protest why she was shot by police rather than being tasered.

"If she had a knife, Taser her. Don't shoot her," she said.

Footage also showed a heated argument where one of the protesters accused a man of "talking s--t".

Another protester yelled at police "genocide never left us", and just after 12.30pm, officers agreed to calls from protesters to lower the Aboriginal flag to half-mast outside the station.

Protesters have also called for an independent investigation into Ms Clarke's death rather than an internal review by the WA Police.

Police have asked those attending to keep the protest peaceful, and protesters emphasised they would not be violent.

A scheduled press conference with Commander Regional WA Alan Morton is set to be held inside the station at 2pm, with protesters expected to remain on Marine Terrace for the remainder of the afternoon.

Media will be required to show identification before they will be allowed inside the station.

It is the second death in police custody in Geraldton in the last five years.
