Central Michigan quarterback John Keller and another student were shot at an apartment complex near campus and hospitalized in serious condition, according to the Detroit Free Press.

Keller and the other student, senior Tyler Bunting, were shot early on Saturday morning, university president Bob Davies said. Bunting was initially listed in stable condition, and Keller was listed in serious condition. 

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.

A GoFundMe page created for Keller and his family said that he 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.”
