Central Michigan Chippewas quarterback John Keller was shot early Saturday morning while he was attending a party in Michigan, according to the Detroit Free Press. He is presently in serious condition.
The school announced that he was shot on Sunday afternoon in a message released by President Dr. Bob Davies.
Keller and another student — who has been identified as Tyler Bunting — were shot at the party. No other details have been released at this time.
Bunting is in stable condition. An investigation is ongoing.
“I and many other CMU staff have personally reached out to each of the students and their families to offer support,” Davies said in a statement. “We are keeping them in our thoughts and prayers. Please join me in hoping for a speedy recovery for both individuals.
“Local law enforcement, led by the Isabella County Sherriff, continues to investigate the incident and is searching for the suspect or suspects involved. I am grateful for the collaboration and care of our region’s public safety agencies. We are fortunate to live in an area supported by multiple law enforcement offices; their efforts ensure our community remains a safe place to live, learn and work.”
Keller transferred into the program after serving as a walk-on with the Cincinnati Bearcats in 2018. He spent 2019 at a junior college, before committing to the Chippewas in 2020.
