Man accused of shooting at neighbors’ homes sent back to jail

Derek Foote in court

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The man accused of firing shots in his Albuquerque neighborhood appeared in court Wednesday and was sent back to jail.

In court Wednesday, a judge remanded Foote’s bond to $50,000 cash only.

Over the weekend, neighbors made 911 calls after police say Derek Foote started shooting a gun, hitting their homes, cars and barbecue grills.

Foote was arrested Monday night, but by Tuesday afternoon, Foote posted bond and was out of jail.

Online jail records show Foote was originally given a $25,000 cash or surety bond. That means he only needed $2,500 to bond out.

Foote was also facing previous charges of shooting at buildings and negligent use of a firearm. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
