On March 28, 2020, deputies with Constable Mark Herman’s Office responded to the 20100 block of Yellow Canyon Falls Drive in
reference to a weapons disturbance. Upon deputies arriving, they observed a large crowd at the location and for safety reasons,
they were all detained.
Further investigation revealed that a male suspect, Derek Tappin was involved in a verbal altercation with a neighbor that turned
physical. A short time later Derek Tappin advised that he observed his neighbor approaching him while he was in his garage. Derek
Tappin was told that the neighbor had a weapon on him. With that information, he armed himself and fired a shot towards his
neighbor and missed but struck an occupied house across the street.
There were no injuries to anyone inside the residence.
“Derek Tappin was arrested and booked into the Harris County Jail, charged with Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon. His
bond was set at $40,000.00 out of the 351st District Court.” – Constable Mark Herman
