Oklahoma City -

Wednesday marks day five of protests in Oklahoma City. 

A group that our News 9 crew spotted Tuesday morning was back out with about double the number of people Wednesday morning.

The protesters chanted and marched half way down Shartel Avenue at 4 a.m. and then took time to regroup before marching all the way down to police headquarters at 5 a.m.

Tuesday night OKC Mayor David Holt visited protesters and listened to concerns. 

"There's a lot of pain here, and I think people need to hear that," said Mayor Hold. "And it's raw and it's uncomfortable. Right? But that's okay people are needing to hear that and see that."

Many of the protesters that were back out Wednesday morning have been rallying for days. 

They said they want people to listen, they want change and they won't stop until they get justice.

They also said they want to see Governor Stitt and invited him to come meet them downtown at 5 p.m.
