Actress and 'Defund the police' activist Alyssa Milano was quick to call cops when she believed an armed gunman was on her Bell Canyon property on Sunday morning.
The call ignited a response that included seven Ventura County Sheriffs' vehicles, one K-9 unit, a police helicopter and one Los Angeles Fire Department team that sat down the street on standby.
DailyMail.com has obtained exclusive photos showing the first responders coming to the aid of the 47-year-old at her five bed, six bath, 8,000 square foot, $2.5 million home in the upscale gated community that sits just 20 minutes north of Los Angeles.
A neighbor tells DailyMail.com, 'We first noticed the helicopter circling overhead very low and knew something was going on, it's usually such a quiet community. Then we saw all the police cars parked in front of Alyssa's home. They had their guns at the ready and seemed very serious.'
As the morning progressed, residents received updates from law enforcement.
Alyssa and her talent agent husband Dave Bugliari, 39, they said, had dialed 911 when they heard what they believed to be gunshots on their 1.39-acre property.
They allegedly told the emergency hotline the sound 'scared their dogs' and made them feel like the gunman was nearby.
A description was given of a suspect to the officers who was 'male, 40-years old, with long rifle'.
The two, who have been married since 2009, were also concerned that it may be someone stalking the former Charmed and Who's The Boss star.
In 2008, Alyssa filed restraining orders against alleged stalker Jeff Turner, a then 54-year old man she claimed twice tried to break into this same home.
The 'Nextdoor' neighborhood app was rife with concerns.
'Just drove by about 12 armed officers on Bell Canyon Road,' one resident wrote, 'They are responding to a call reporting a man with a gun in the neighborhood!! This was also the cause of the helicopter. Stay inside, stay safe!'
Alyssa Milano's gate sat open with law enforcement guarding the entire perimeter of the street, as these DailyMail.com photos show.
The search by air and street level lasted over three hours and ended abruptly at 12.20pm.
'It turned out it was a neighborhood teen with an air gun shooting at squirrels,' a resident told the DailyMail.com.... (Read more)
