A murder victim has been identified by the Contra Costa County coroner’s office today as 19-year-old Antioch resident Kadeem Hodge, who was shot and killed early Sunday morning in his hometown, police said.
An Antioch resident with the same name was arrested a day earlier for allegedly shoplifting at the Sunvalley Shopping Center in Concord, but Concord police did not immediately confirm whether it is the same person, however, friends of the victim have confirmed he is the same man.
Antioch police found Hodge on Empire Mine Road at 2:27 a.m. Sunday with what appeared to be gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead where police found him.
Concord police on Saturday were patrolling the Sunvalley Shopping Center when shoppers alerted them to an alleged shoplifting case.
Witnesses provided a description of the suspect vehicle, which police found quickly as the vehicle entered the highway.
Officers pulled the vehicle over and found stolen merchandise from several stores.
Police said besides Hodge, they also arrested Tiana Mayberry of Antioch.
Hodge and Mayberry were arrested on suspicion of shoplifting, conspiracy and possessing burglary tools.

Arrested and killed in one day? Didn’t even spend one day in jail? Good job California.

Prop 47 cost him his life.
Oh boy... December 4, 2017 at 3:39 PM
I see a lawsuit coming from his family. This will somehow be the police’s fault for releasing him back into the public.

Arrested one day, back on the street the same day, killed the next…
When will the bleeding hearts wake up? I’m not holding my breath…

Cellophane you are so right and I’m not holding my breath either.

Wow, don’t understand people thinking these days….
So he was caught shoplifting, someone didn’t like the fact he didn’t get away with it so they killed him, what a POS!!

Arrested on Saturday, dead at 2:30am Sunday. How do you even make bail that quick. Oh well, saves the county money. Now only if this catch, release, eliminate could become standard procedure.

The body count grows as the Democrat war against the poor continues.
In the long term, weak laws and poor enforcement hurt the poor the most. This young man would be alive today if we had elected a Republican governor or had a Republican legislature.

So, he wouldn’t have enemies based off an election?!?

Perhaps Mr.Hodge had one of those off-street “Pay Day Loans” come due, And the botched Sunvalley heist was an attempt to reconcile that debt. Maybe Claycord / Antioch police can provide some insight as this evolves…

He was released hours after being arrested? Unbelievable.
Mr Big December 4, 2017 at 5:23 PM
Aw, too bad.

The new “bring your own bag” law is really working (for thieves).

What sword are you claiming he lived by? Are you saying stealing is a crime people should die for?
Fred December 4, 2017 at 6:51 PM
Lambie-It’s called proposition 47-no one goes to jail-deal with it
Your liberal friends voted for it

…….about 2002 Empire Mine Road was known as “The Shadow Lands” due to Ghosts and other Supernatural events….It was also gated in later years so the involved subjects are also guilty of trespassing.

Wonder what happens to people like this? I see he went to st Ignacius for 5-8th grade, so someone had to love him to pay that much money for his education. Crazy.
Acc December 4, 2017 at 7:48 PM
@Pony, haven’t you heard? Bail is racist
SmileWC December 4, 2017 at 8:32 PM
Where are the parents? Son, you were arrested for shoplifting today – no, you can’t go out tonight!
At @ 2:00 a.m., son, where are you? – You need to be home in bed, it’s late
Yes, we;re talking about a 19 year old, I have one too – they are accountable if they are living at home!
JD December 9, 2017 at 4:04 PM
19 year olds make their own decisions. Do you think someone on the street at 2 in the morning follows directions? If your teen found a way outside at that time and was murdered that you’d be accountable?

Geez! …….. Lavar Ball said it was no big deal.
MeCrazyWoman December 4, 2017 at 10:27 PM
My first reaction doesn’t jive with any of these comments. My thoughts are that this is so sad. I don’t like crime but we are talking about someone’s life. It could be your kid that messes up.
Elwood December 4, 2017 at 10:59 PM
Kadeem definitely did not have a good weekend!
tita December 5, 2017 at 1:08 AM
Only one life What will you do with the time you have? Where will you spend eternity? No “do overs”…Such a waste…Apparently stealing was easier than working..If his parents could afford a good education they probably could afford his Bail…Sometimes its better to let the kid experience some Jail and hopefully it will scare them straight…
JD December 9, 2017 at 4:06 PM
He was cited and released.

@ Pony
He was most likely out before the officer left the jail! Welcome to California! This is how the voters want it!

@ MeCrazyWoman
This “kid” didn’t just mess up. Given the fact that he was arrested just hours before “should” show you that this was more of a pattern. The criminal/thug life can be dangerous. All of our life decisions have consequences. He made his choice on what direction he wanted to go.

Wow, it’s really surprising what the anonymity of the Internet has done to our community. I will pray for each and everyone of you who have fallen off of the path, to be led into such hateful and judgemental thoughts.
Toxic emotions spread like wildfire, I implore you to get a handle on it before it’s too late. Bless you all.

We use to party out on that road 15 years ago and now sec.8 made it all bad.
My poor hometown.

total waste of good money
JD December 9, 2017 at 4:08 PM
Says you. What if his soul was saved over those years?

Young life tragically cut short? Great time to dust off some prejudices and stereotypes and drag the poor boy through the mud.
