An Aug. 30 gun buyback program conducted by the Detroit Police Department at a westside Detroit parish netted 365 guns.
Among the weapons turned in at St. Cecilia Church were at least six assault weapons and a handful of sawed-off shotguns.
The total paid for the guns was $16,820, which came from funds contributed by Catholics in both city and suburban parishes.
People selling handguns at the buyback got $50.
Those who sold long guns and nonoperational weapons got $25, and those who sold assault weapons got $100.
All payments were made onsite and in cash.
No questions were asked of those who volunteered to sell their guns.
