Boy Threatens George W. Bush's Life: Officials

Secret Service investigated and spoke to the Atlantic City 10-year-old

A 10-year-old Atlantic City boy allegedly made a death threat against former President George W. Bush this week, sources say.

The fifth grader, who attends Dr. Martin Muther King, Jr. School in Atlantic City, called the George W. Bush Presidential Library near Dallas, Texas earlier this week.

The boy left a voicemail saying that he was going to kill the former president, sources confirmed to NBC Philadelphia’s Ted Greenberg.

The 10-year-old was not at school at the time of the call, sources say.

The Secret Service investigated the death threat and spoke to the child, but it does not expect to file any charges, sources told Greenberg.
