The death of a 26-year-old Florida A&M University student and drum major has been ruled a homicide, according to a medical examiner.
Robert Champion Jr. died after a November 19 football game in Orlando.
Orange County officials said in a statement that Champion died because of "hemorrhagic shock, due to soft tissue hemorrhage, due to blunt force trauma sustained during a hazing incident."
The announcement came just as Florida Gov. Rick Scott wrapped up a meeting with embattled Florida A&M President James Ammons. A day earlier, the governor recommended Ammons be suspended amid an investigation into various issues at the university.
