Over 100 Guns Turned In During Harlem Buyback Event

New York City Police Department officials say 139 guns were turned in during yesterday's buyback event.

The NYPD teamed up with the Manhattan district attorney for buybacks at two Harlem churches.

Authorities exchanged bank cards of up to $200 for working handguns, rifles, and shotguns.

NYPD officials say the department has taken more than 7,000 guns off the streets since the buyback program started in 2008.
