FAMU Dismisses Four Students Connected To Death

Florida A&M University said that it’s dismissing four students for their role in the death of a marching band member last month, while audio of an emergency call released Thursday showed that the drum major had vomit in his mouth in the moments before he died.

University President James Ammons referred to the dismissals in a memo he sent earlier this week to members of the FAMU Board of Trustees, but didn’t specify what the four students did. Authorities say hazing played a role in the death of Robert Champion, but they have not released any more specifics as they continue to investigate.

Ammons says in his memo that the university has a zero-tolerance policy on hazing, then states: “I want to report that four students have been dismissed from the University in connection to the Robert Champion incident.”
