CNN Breaking News

Four students were dismissed from a Florida university in connection with the death of Robert Champion, the drum major who died last month in what officials have called a hazing-related death, a spokeswoman from the school told CNN.

Authorities have not specified what caused the 26-year-olds death after a performance last month with the Marching 100 band from Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University. His family has said it plans to sue the school “to get answers.”

Earlier Thursday, Florida Gov. Rick Scott called for a review of state universities’ hazing and harassment policies.
