Amid allegations of hazing and other violations, an LSU fraternity has been shut down.

According WBRZ, a letter from Delta Kappa Epsilon announced the closure of its LSU chapter on Tuesday. All chapter activities and operations have been ordered to cease and the chapter must disband immediately.

An internal investigation is being completed by the fraternity’s national chapter, according to that letter.

WBRZ says that DKE is known for the banners its members displayed on LSU gamedays and has been on interim suspension since August over separate alleged violations.

A report has been filed with the LSU Police Department and school administrators.
