COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — The Sigma Nu fraternity has suspended all activities of its Kappa Sigma chapter at Texas A&M University following the death by drug overdose of a member last weekend.

A fraternity statement Thursday announced the suspension while an investigation into the death of 19-year-old Anton Gridnev of Frisco takes place.

College Station police determined Gridnev died of a drug overdose last Saturday at the fraternity house. Four students have been arrested on drug-related charges.

The executive director of the Virginia-based fraternity, Brad Beacham, says Sigma Nu officials are cooperating in the investigation. The fraternity also suspended the membership of the four suspects.

The Texas A&M chapter was founded in 1985.
