Life term for murderer of Hells Angel

23:48 |

A Mongols motorcycle club member was sentenced to life in prison Tuesday for the murder of the president of the San Francisco chapter of the Hells Angels, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said. Christopher Bryan Ablett, 39, killed 46-year-old Mark “Papa” Guardado on Sept. 2, 2008, outside a Mission district bar near 24th and Treat streets, U.S. Attorney Melinda Haag said. Ablett had reportedly traveled to San Francisco to see a friend that day, Haag said. At the time, he was armed with a footlong military knife and a .357 Magnum revolver, and he was wearing a Mongols jacket and T-shirt. When Guardado heard Ablett was wearing his colors in a bar that was five minutes away from the Hells Angels’ headquarters, he went there to confront him. They spoke outside the bar about 10:30 p.m. and a fight broke out. During the melee, Ablett stabbed Guardado four times and shot him twice, Haag said.   Ablett received two concurrent life sentences and one consecutive due to various enhancements. Jurors did not believe Ablett’s claim that he was defending himself and his friends. The jury also found that Ablett murdered Guardado to increase his gang status. The Mongols and Hells Angels have been battling for decades, according to the U.S. Department of Justice. In a bloody clash in 2002 at the Laughlin River Run motorcycle event in Las Vegas, three people were killed and 10 others were hospitalized. Last year, a member of each club suffered stab wounds during a brawl at a motorcycle rally in Sturgis, S.D.
