A man who reportedly made terroristic threats toward the office of a city councilman is now in police custody.

According to an arrest affidavit, Nathan Harrell called the field office of District 10 Councilman Clayton Perry last week, requesting a face-to-face meeting when "the conversation became hostile" and "confrontational."

KSAT reports that during the phone call Harrell said he "felt targeted" at a young age. He allegedly referenced mass shootings and said he had access to weapons and body armor. The phone call prompted Perry's staff members to evacuate the field office and shut down for the day.

Police said Harrell, 30, previously made threats to bomb a past employer's location, for which he was investigated.

Harrell is now facing a charge of making terroristic threats to a public servant.
