Central Michigan University quarterback John Keller is in serious condition after being shot at an off-campus party early Sunday morning, according to police.
Isabella County Sheriff’s officers responded to 911 calls around 1 a.m. Sunday at an apartment complex a few miles away from campus and found Keller, 20, and senior Tyler Bunting, 23, with gunshot wounds, according to police.
Both men were transported to the hospital, Keller in serious condition and Bunting in stable condition.
Keller was shot in the chest and has since been life flighted to Hurley Medical Center, according to a GoFundMe set up to raise money for his medical bills.
“I and many other CMU staff have personally reached out to each of the students and their families to offer support,” CMU president Dr. Bob Davies said in a statement Sunday. “We are keeping them in our thoughts and prayers. Please join me in hoping for a speedy recovery for both individuals.”
The suspect fled the scene and no arrests have been made, but police said there is no threat to the public.
Keller walked on to the University of Cincinnati Bearcats in 2018 out of North Canton Hoover High School, but didn’t play a game his freshman year. He transferred to Pearl River Community College, then committed to Central Michigan University in 2020, where he sat out last season.
Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call Isabella County Central Dispatch at 989-773-1000.
