Marietta schools were put on a soft lockdown Wednesday afternoon due to an unverified threat.

Police Chief Dustin Scott tells us that a parent heard from a student that another student might have had a gun at the high school.

That parent then called authorities, and police got there around 2-40 p.m.

The high school was searched. Authorities say nothing was found, no arrests were made, and no students were in any danger.

A post on the school's facebook page states that students have been cleared and released... and buses would run late by an hour or more.

Marietta police are asking the public to call them if they have any information.
