Non-profit organizes gun buy-back program in Wilmington

Monday, July 22nd, 2013


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A non-profit group is trying to cut down on gun violence in the area by buying back guns next month.

The effort is hosted by LINC Incorporated, a local non-profit agency whose goal is to educate and motivate youth to make positive life choices.

LINC is partnering with local law enforcement and business owners to organize a citywide gun buy-back program in memory of two murder victims.

The Josh Proutey and Demetrius Greene Gun Buy-Back event is scheduled for Saturday, August 24, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Three gun drop-off sites throughout the City will be selected. Anyone who turns in guns will be offered $100 for working handguns and $200 for assault weapons. They’ll be paid with Visa gift cards or cash.

The Wilmington Police Department, New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office and the District Attorney have all signed on to support this community driven effort.

Proutey, 19, was shot and killed while leaving work in December at the Community Arts Center in Wilmington. Greene, 8, died when he was shot and killed in Feb. 1997.
