The national office of Pi Kappa Phi has suspended chapter activities for their Berkeley chapter over an alleged hazing incident that happened last weekend.
Apparently the victim "was shot at least 30 times in the chest and arms with a BB gun". He was then taken to a local hospital and a nurse called the BPD. No information has been released yet regarding the victim.
Choice Quote: "Essentially, they are just a boarding house right now," said Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity Chief Executive Officer Mark E. Timmes from headquarters in Charlotte, N.C. "They can have their meetings, but nothing in terms of any social activities."
Their suspension is pending the completion of a police investigation.
Some Analysis: Well they haven't said yet whether the guy who got shot was a member of the fraternity, pledge, etc... But if the national organization is willing to suspend their chapter over the incident then you can imagine its pretty bad. This is the second time Pi Kap has been in the news this week. Their other news mention involved a fight between a Pi Kap member and his friends versus members from another fraternity.
The University will almost certainly crack down very harshly. It is definitly not a good time to be a Pi Kap...Email This Post!
