At about 8:15 a.m. two black men armed with a shotgun entered the Rite Aid at 731 Whitlock Ave. near Manning Road and robbed the store, taking an undisclosed amount of cash, said Officer David Baldwin, spokesman for Marietta Police.
No one was injured.
The two suspects were seen leaving the store and running down Manning Road. Marietta High School and Burruss Elementary School were put on lockdown for about 15 minutes. Other schools increased security measures.
The lockdown was lifted when police confirmed a witness saw the suspects get into a vehicle and leave the area.
No arrests have been made.
“We are working some very good leads right now,” Baldwin said.
