One person dies after being taken from LSU fraternity house to hospital”

East Baton Rouge Coroner Beau Clark says 18-year-old Maxwell Gruver passed away at a hospital after he was transported there from campus. Gruver was an LSU student from Georgia.

The Baton Rouge-based public university released a statement saying school officials were "aware of an incident" Wednesday night "involving a fraternity". He was later pronounced dead at the hospital.

Alexander expressed condolences to Gruver's family at a press conference Thursday.

King Alexander called hazing unsafe and irresponsible and announced that all Greek activities on campus have been suspended indefinitely.

Alcohol is also "part of the allegations", Alexander said. "We mourn the loss and the possible impact he may have had on our region and the world".

Alexander stressed that hazing will not be tolerated at LSU. The university said it was investigating.

"Hazing is unsafe, irresponsible and unacceptable".

LSU President F. King Alexander said all Greek activities are suspended indefinitely pending the results of the investigation.

According to the Phi Delta Theta page in the annual LSU Greek handbook, the organization has three founding principles of "Friendship, Sound Learning, and Moral Rectitude".

Additional details are expected.
