(CNN)A Bowling Green State University (BGSU) sophomore died after drinking at a fraternity event, an attorney for his family said.

In a statement to CNN on Sunday, Alto called Foltz's death "a tragedy. "

Pi Kappa Alpha International Fraternity said in a statement Saturday that a new member of the BGSU chapter "was involved in an alleged incident of alcohol-related hazing at an off-campus event. "

"The International Fraternity is horrified and outraged by this incident," the international fraternity said in a statement.

The BGSU chapter was placed on "administrative suspension," the fraternity added.

A spokesperson for BGSU told CNN that it has also placed its chapter of Pi Kappa Alpha on interim suspension.

"The local law enforcement and university investigations are ongoing," Alex Solis, a BGSU spokesperson, told CNN in an email statement.

"However, I can confirm that we have placed Pi Kappa Alpha on interim suspension for alleged hazing activity. "

On Saturday, the university said in a series of tweets that it met with "student leaders to decide the short- and long-term future of fraternity and sorority life at BGSU. "

"BGSU is committed to not just the student conduct and law enforcement investigations, but a full inquiry into each Greek chapter's prevention and compliance responsibilities under University policies prohibiting hazing," the university wrote.

Duncan Faulk, Foltz's freshman roommate at BGSU, mourned his friend.

Foltz's family was able to donate his organs, Alto said.
