DALLAS, Ga. (WXIA) -- Paulding County officials are investigating reports of threats involving East Paulding High School that were posted on social media.
The Paulding County Sheriff's Office said they began receiving calls Tuesday night that messages had been posted on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram that not only contained general threats, but mentioned a gun.
The sheriff's office contacted school officials and posted extra officers at the school Wednesday morning. The officers were looking for any weapons and keeping a general eye on the situation at the school.
Paulding County Associate Superintendent of Schools Brian Otott said no weapons were found on the school's campus, and the school was never placed on lockdown.
Investigators said four students at the school and their parents were questioned in connection with the threats.
School officials wouldn't reveal the contents of the messages or who posted them.
One upset parent who spoke with 11Alive's Duffie Dixon said her son had been expelled, but emphasized that he was not involved in the web postings.
