A Buffalo State College student from Canarsie died on Feb. 18 in what officials believe was a hazing ritual.
Bradley Doyley, 21, became sick following an off-campus hazing incident involving the Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity, according to a statement from the school.
Police are investigating for criminal activity, said Buffalo Police chief of detectives Dennis Richards. He is not aware of similar incidents within the fraternity, he said.
But the college and the frat’s national governing body have suspended its activities during the investigation, the school’s statement reads.
Doyley graduated from the High School for Sports Management in Gravesend in 2012. He was set to graduate Buffalo State this spring as a business major. He also played for the men’s basketball team during his first two-and-a-half years at the college.
His parents lived in Canarsie before moving to Florida two years ago, according to a Daily News report.
