Detroit police say they're willing to pay $50 for a working gun as part of a firearms buyback event.

The Detroit News reports Detroit PD officials are to set up shop Thursday at Second Ebenezer Church.

From 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., people can bring in both broken and functioning guns for cash.

Police say they'll pay $25 for a gun that doesn't work to $50 for one that does.

The newspaper says cash is to be handed out on the spot.
