The university on Monday announced the action against the Kappa Alpha fraternity but provided no details about the alleged hazing that occurred last week.

The Columbia Daily Tribune reports the action comes after police investigated a report last week of an underage student who was taken from the fraternity to a hospital with alcohol poisoning.

Police spokeswoman Latisha Stroer says the investigation into that incident is ongoing.

A second fraternity, Delta Upsilon, was temporarily suspended last week after members were accused of yelling racist and sexist slurs at black students outside the fraternity house. That investigation also is ongoing.
