An LSU fraternity is under interim suspension as the university investigates behavior that potentially violated its code of conduct, according to a letter addressed to the fraternity president obtained by WBRZ.

According to the letter sent on Monday, an alleged incident occurred involving the Delta Chi fraternity during the week of August 19.

The interim suspension means new and initiated members of the Delta Chi fraternity are prohibited from having contact outside of approved meetings. They’re also not allowed to participate in Greek activities unless approved by LSU.

The suspension follows the shutdown of another LSU fraternity, Phi Delta, after the death of freshman Max Gruver during an alleged night of hazing.

On May 31, Gov. John Bel Edwards signed a package of bills aimed at addressing the issue of hazing on Louisiana university campuses.
