CHELSEA, AL (WBRC) -

The lockdown at Chelsea Middle School has been lifted after a search of the school yielded no threats to students.

Deputies responded to the school Friday morning around 9 a.m. to investigate a verbal threat made by one student against another, the Shelby County Sheriff's Office said.

The student allegedly threatened another student Thursday after they left the middle school's campus.

The school was placed on lockdown for a little more than an hour as deputies searched the school. They did not find any weapons at the school and no students were hurt.

Deputies spoke with both students involved in the threat. The sheriff's office says one deputy will remain at the school to continue to investigate the threat and "ensure there are no further incidents."

The school has resumed normal operations.
