Antioch Police Nab Murder Suspect in Year-Old Homicide on Peppertree Way


On Friday, the Antioch Police Department announced the arrest of Jordan Thompson, 28 of Vallejo, in connection with a January 2019 fatal shooting in the 2100 block of Peppertree Way.

On January 12, at approximately 1:52 pm, Antioch police officers were dispatched to the 2100 block of Peppertree Way for multiple shots fired and a man down.

Officers arrived on scene and located 28-Year-Old Jacory Brown down in the street, suffering from several gunshot wounds to his upper body. Brown was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced deceased by hospital staff.

According to police, it was determined through this investigation that Brown and 23-Year-Old Jordan Thompson were involved in a verbal/physical altercation and Thompson shot Brown several times during the altercation.

Antioch Police Department investigators spent most of 2019 attempting to track-down Thompson, but he evaded capture. On January 17, 2020 at 9:01 AM, an Antioch Police Department patrol officer conducted a traffic enforcement stop on a vehicle on Contra Loma Boulevard near Longview Road.

Jordan Thompson was contacted as the lone occupant/driver of the vehicle.

Thompson was arrested on a probable cause warrant related to this murder and interviewed at the Antioch Police Department. Thompson was later booked into the County Jail in Martinez and is being held with No-Bail allowed.

This case will be presented to the Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office early next week.
