More than 1,000 guns collected during a Tampa Police Department's gun buy-back event will be destroyed.

A police statement says more than 1,000 guns were collected Saturday. A final count will be completed next week. Residents lined up waiting to turn in their guns. The police department paid $50 for each handgun and rifle turned in.

The Tampa Bay Lightning and the widow of slain police officer Dave Curtis funded the event.
