ATLANTA -- Florida A&M University is looking into another alleged hazing incident, this time concerning the school's dance team.

FAMU interim president Larry Robinson suspended the Torque Dance Team Tuesday, following an anonymous tip that some members were involved in hazing rituals Labor Day weekend.

According to a school-issued press release, a parent notified school officials about the alleged off-campus incident. The group is suspended "until further notice."

This latest investigation comes as the school is still reeling from the death of Marching 100 drum major Robert Champion. The Decatur-native died after participating in hazing events last November.

Champion's death launched FAMU into a sea of controversy: the Marching 100 band has been suspended through 2013, the university's president and band director both stepped down, and FDLE has launched an investigation into the school.

Twelve people are facing felony charges in Champion's death.
