Central Michigan QB in critical condition after shooting

Central Michigan quarterback John Keller is hospitalized in critical condition after being shot at a party, police said.

Keller, 20, was shot in the chest after a fight broke out at an off-campus party in Mount Pleasant, Mich., at about 1 a.m. local time Saturday, according to the Isabella County Sheriff’s Department.

Keller was transported by helicopter to Hurley Medical Center in Flint, Mich., and is “fighting for his life,” according to a GoFundMe page set up by his family to help with medical expenses.

A second person was also wounded during the shooting, according to authorities. No suspects had been identified or apprehended as of Sunday morning.

Keller, of North Canton, Ohio, began his college career at Cincinnati before transferring to Pearl River Community College in Mississippi. He announced his commitment to Central Michigan in January 2020 and sat out last season due to NCAA requirements. He has three years of eligibility remaining.
