      After a man was shot at a fraternity party at the Exchange Club Fair Grounds, officials say safety is a main priority.

      Larry Griffin, President of the Fair Grounds, says absolutely no guns are allowed inside the gates.

      He says all guns caught on the premises will be confiscated.

      Police officers are hired to walk around looking for offenders and guard dogs are placed at the gates to keep unwanted items out.

      Griffin says someone with an Albany State fraternity rented out the fair grounds for a party Saturday night.

      During this party, one man was shot in the foot.

      Fair officials say the issue with a lot of parties is the abundance of alcohol.

      Monday morning alcohol bottles were still scattered around the fair ground premises.
