GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — A Michigan football player who was hospitalized after being shot has been released from the hospital.

Central Michigan University quarterback John Keller, who was shot during a party two miles away from campus on April 24, was released from the hospital Friday.

Another student, Tyler Bunting, was also shot at the party.

“Very thankful to be heading home today,” Keller said in a tweet. “First, I have to thank god and I want to thank all of you for the prayers and support as they have been answered on this tough road. Thank you Hurley for saving my life.”

Authorities said on April 27 they had arrested the man who shot them.
