A 14-year-old Evanston teenager has died after being pulled from Lake Michigan off a Wilmette beach.

Tristan Shambee, of 1929 Grey Ave., reportedly had gone swimming Saturday afternoon with two companions. When the friends returned to the shore they discovered Shambee wasn’t with them.

The Chicago Sun-Times and Chicago Tribune report that rescue crews dispatched to the area near Gilson Beach found Shambee in the water. He was taken to Evanston Hospital where he was pronounced dead at 7:26 p.m.
