Southern Miss closing Kappa Sigma house

The Kappa Sigma fraternity house has been shut down by University of Southern Mississippi officials as part of an investigation into an alleged hazing incident that sent two women students to a hospital.

USM officials said that the fraternity's charter also was revoked.

The university was assisting students in moving out of the fraternity house, located along Fraternity Row on the university's campus in Hattiesburg.

One of the students remained in the hospital Thursday. Both students, school officials say, were treated for alcohol poisoning.

Neither student has been identified. The incident occurred during a fraternity initiation party at the Kappa Sigma fraternity house.
