"Unsettling to say the least" is how Jeremy Mayhew described the circling helicopter over his Chilmark home Tuesday afternoon.

"They just hovered above me in my driveway with a bright light aimed at me! This is so strange," Mayhew tweeted, before learning from Patch that the aircraft was searching for a man with a gun reported in the area.
