MEMPHIS, Tenn. - 443 guns that used to be in the community will not find their way into the wrong hands.
An internal audit released Tuesday shows the Memphis Police Department properly destroyed the guns.
- Man says he was beaten by West Memphis police, plans to take action
- 3 killed, 3 injured in head-on collision
- Florida teacher fired over eyebrow-raising 'How comfortable am I?' assignment
- Memphis man arrested in brutal attack
The Audit Department makes sure no guns go missing from the evidence room and are properly disposed of.
The weapons were collected as part of Mayor Strickland's gun buy-back program late last year.
