Central Michigan Quarterback John Keller is fighting for his life after being shot near campus

Former Cincinnati QB John Keller transferred to Central Michigan hoping to get on the field and is now fighting after being shot in the chest near the campus.

We are asking for your prayers, we need people to pray heavily for John Keller the former Cincinnati Bearcats transfer quarterback at Central Michigan.

Keller and another student were shot at an apartment complex near the CMU campus.

The other student shot was Tyler Bunting. The shooting happened early Saturday morning. Keller is fighting for his life while Bunting is in stable condition.

Law enforcement said the shooter(s) fled the scene and are still at large, with no one in custody. 

According to CM Life, the university’s student newspaper, a fight broke out at a party shortly after “several subjects” arrived. Somebody allegedly then went to a vehicle after the fight broke out to retrieve a weapon, and then started shooting upon returning.

GoFundMe page was created by a family friend of Keller’s saying that Keller was shot in the chest.

“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 Sheriff, continues to investigate the incident and is searching for the suspect or suspects involved.”
