BUFFALO (AP) — A university student in upstate New York has died following suspected hazing that led to a suspension of fraternity and sorority activities.

University at Buffalo President Satish Tripathi says Sebastian Serafin-Bazan died Wednesday. The 18-year-old freshman from Port Chester was hospitalized early Friday after the suspected hazing at an off-campus house.

Details of the case involving the Sigma Pi fraternity have not been released. Buffalo Police Capt. Jeff Rinaldo says police are investigating whether drugs or alcohol were involved and are awaiting autopsy results.

In a written statement that the university said would be its only comment Wednesday, Tripathi extended condolences to the student’s family and friends.

University officials say an internal review is underway.
