Almost one month after he was shot in the chest at an apartment complex near campus, Central Michigan quarterback John Keller is headed home.

Keller, his father Ray tweeted on Friday morning, was released from the hospital and will continue recovering at home.

Keller and another student, senior Tyler Bunting, were both shot early on April 24 at an apartment complex near Central Michigan’s campus. A fight reportedly broke out at the party after “several suspects” arrived. Police believe that one man, Kenneth Thomas, briefly left the party to grab a gun from his vehicle. When he returned, Thomas allegedly started firing into the apartment.

Keller and Bunting were the only two people who were hit. Bunting was also hospitalized, but was in stable condition.

Police arrested Thomas days after the shooting, and he pleaded not guilty to 10 different charges.

Keller, 21, sat out last season at Central Michigan. He landed there after initially walking-on at Cincinnati before he transferred to a community college.
