MT. CLEMENS, Mich. (CBS DETROIT) - A 13-year-old boy is charged after officials say he threatened an elementary school in Mt. Clemens.

Macomb County prosecutors charged the teen with making a school threat. He was arraigned Tuesday and was denied bond. He was also ordered to receive a mental health evaluation.

Officials say on Sept. 16, the teen allegedly left a threatening message on the school's voicemail.

"My office has a zero-tolerance policy for all school threats, and we aim to address not only the immediate legal concerns but also the underlying issues that may have led to this unfortunate situation. Our community's safety and the welfare of our youth remain paramount," said Macomb County Prosecutor Peter Lucido in a statement.
