Divers from the Berrien County Sheriff's Office pulled the body of Travonne Shannon out of the water about 9:20 p.m. Saturday. Authorities say he was jumping off a pier near Silver Beach with a relative about 7:20 p.m. Saturday when he didn't resurface.

Authorities said Shannon was a junior at Benton Harbor High School.

Authorities say jumping off the pier is dangerous and highly discouraged.
