PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Police say a 15-year-old boy was taken to the hospital for a mental health evaluation after threatening to burn down his high school in North Portland.

Sgt. Pete Simpson of the Portland Police Bureau says officers responded late Thursday afternoon to De La Salle North Catholic High. They learned that the student left school and then returned after dismissal with a gas can and matches. He went into the chemistry room and said he would light his notebook on fire.

According to Simpson, the student did not set a fire and voluntarily went with the principal to the main office, where officers took him into custody.
