Ernie Ballard, LSU spokesman, confirms that LSU Police Department is investigating the death of Max Gruver, an 18-year-old LSU student and Phi Delta Theta pledge, as a hazing incident. 

LSU President F. King Alexander called hazing dangerous and irresponsible and announced that all Greek activities on campus have been suspended indefinitely. That means no Greek organized social activities or pledging, he said. 

Gruver was transported to Our Lady of the Lake Hospital on Thursday morning where he was pronounced dead, university officials said. 

More details to come.
