A night of fun turned violent in one Valley community this weekend.
Police were called to a fight at an apartment on Devon Lane Saturday night. They later found bullet holes in the building and arrested 20-year-old Michael Adams of Yorktown for allegedly shooting a gun unlawfully.
Police say it's common for JMU parties to attract people from outside the city, but some wonder if that's putting the lives of valley residents in danger.
"We're trying to deal with that situation with different programs, prevention programs, getting out to the students, talking with them," says Lt. Kurt Boshart with the Harrisonburg Police Department.
Students say they feel safe at most parties, but police say you should always take precautions and be aware of who's around.
