HOUSTON (AP) — The University of Houston president suspended the Sigma Chi fraternity at the school following allegations of hazing that jeopardized students' health and safety.

University President Renu Khator said in a statement Tuesday that she's "shocked, dismayed and deeply disappointed" by the allegations.

The statement provides no details of what is alleged to have happened, but Khator says the university has suspended five students. She says if the allegations prove to be true, the five "will be subject to immediate disciplinary action, up to and including expulsion."
