A Pennsylvania State University fraternity has been suspended following the death of a teen at an off-campus house over the weekend.

The coroner's office identified the victim as 17-year-old John "Jack" Schoenig, according to ABC News.

StateCollege.com reported that police and EMS were dispatched to a house at 522 W. College Ave. at 9:27 p.m., where they found Schoenig in cardiac arrest. They tried to resuscitate him, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Schoenig was visiting the school from Erie, Pennsylvania, where he was a senior hockey player at Cathedral Preparatory Academy, the Centre Daily Times reported.

The school said in a statement that the house is "allegedly" occupied by members of the Chi Phi fraternity, but it is not their main fraternity house.

The school has placed Chi Phi on suspension while they investigate the cause of the teen's death. It means that the fraternity will not be able to "participate, attend or organize any functions, activities or events, or participate in University-wide events as an organization."

"Penn State offers deepest sympathies to the family and friends of this young man," the university said.

The incident comes almost two years after the school made national headlines for another fraternity scandal.

Timothy Piazza, 19, died in February 2017, after falling during a hazing incident at the now-defunct Beta Theta Pi house, according to NBC Philadelphia.

Anyone with information on Schoenig's death is being asked to call the State College Police at 814-234-7150.
