A fraternity linked to hazings at two other universities has been suspended at Kansas State University because a pledge was beaten with fists, paddles and canes.

Ernest L. Harris Jr., 23, was in serious but stable condition Monday with kidney injuries suffered Saturday in an apparent hazing ritual required to join the Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity.Kansas State University suspended the four-member chapter of the fraternity Monday, the first step toward expelling it. The school said only one of the four members was involved in Harris' beating, though six to eight other people may also have been involved.
