Albany -- A Lee County High School graduation party turned into a brawl with gunshots fired,  one person injured, and three people arrested.

Police were called to the Amehr Event and Conference Center in the 600 Block of West Ogelthorpe late Saturday night. Center managers say approximately 150 people were at the party when a huge fight broke out.

 18-year old Jaboris Preston of Brunswick suffered minor cuts when he crashed through the front window. He told police he wasn't fighting, and fell through the window.

Police say 22-year old Kenneth Profit of Leesburg fired several shots from a 9-millimeter pistol in the parking lot. They charged him with reckless conduct.

 Two more teenagers were charged with obstruction for not following Officer's orders.
