Central Michigan quarterback John Keller remains critical but stable condition in a Michigan hospital after he was shot late Saturday at an off-campus apartment complex.
And an arrest was made in the case Tuesday afternoon.
Kenneth Thomas, a suspect in the shooting, was arraigned Wednesday in Isabella County Trial Court. He pleaded not guilty to 10 charges and a $1 million cash or surety bond was set.
Lauren Rhodes, who organized Keller's GoFundMe account, posted an update on Keller's condition and the case. She said Keller was, "showing all the right signs of his body healing."
"John continues to fight for his life at Hurley Medical Center and prayers are needed now more than ever," she said.
According to multiple media outlets, Isabella County Sheriff's Office arrested Thomas of Detroit on Tuesday afternoon in connection with the shooting near Central Michigan University campus. Keller and another CMU students were shot at a party.
"John took heroic actions to prevent (the assailant) from entering into the building to shoot other individuals," Rhodes said. "John is a hero and he deserves our support and prayers during this time."
Sheriff Michael Main released more details into the case following the arrest and said Thomas was part of a group from the Detroit area that came to Mount Pleasant, where CMU is located, to visit bars and nightclubs.
According to the Morning Sun, Main said the group went to the apartment complex after the bars closed for an after-hour party and they began to fight with people already there.
Thomas allegedly grabbed a gun from a vehicle and fired into the apartment.
Struck were Keller, a quarterback on the football team, and senior Tyler Bunting. Bunting was reported in stable condition at MidMichigan Medical Center in Midland.
Keller was a preferred walk-on at the University of Cincinnati in 2018.
He didn't play in a game as a freshman for the Bearcats, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. After Cincinnati, he went to Pearl River Community College before committing to Central Michigan in 2020. He sat out last season.
A second suspect is wanted in the case.
