His comments became heated and at one point, City Council President Maryanne Clattenburg asked Police Chief Randy Baker if Shepard had actually threatened lawmakers.
Baker said, "yes."
Clattenburg then said to Shepard, "you're done."
City Manager Jason Molino said he would look into Shepard’s concerns.
