HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) – A fraternity at the University of Southern Mississippi has been suspended after an unspecified incident during an event at the group’s house.

Southern Miss spokesman Jim Coll tells The Hattiesburg American ( ) that Sigma Alpha Epsilon is suspended pending the outcome of a university police investigation.

Coll says the investigation was launched based on “multiple reports of possible violations of the Code of Student Conduct following a fraternity event Oct. 29.”

University officials declined to elaborate on what took place.

Coll says until the investigation is complete, the fraternity is restricted from having any on- or off-campus chapter activities.
