Louisiana State University suspended all Greek activities indefinitely on Thursday, saying police were investigating the death of an 18-year-old freshman as a "potential hazing incident" involving a fraternity, NBC News reported.
The student, Maxwell Raymond Gruver, was taken to a hospital for a "medical emergency" and was later pronounced dead, said Ernie Ballard, the university's media relations director.
"Police are investigating this case as a potential hazing incident involving Phi Delta Theta fraternity," he said in an email.
