Mongol Motorcycle Gang Member Found Guilty of Killing Hells Angels SF Chapter President
A member of the Mongols motorcycle gang was found guilty and could face life in prison for murdering the San Francisco chapter president of the Hells Angels.
A member of the Modesto chapter of the Mongols, Ablett had been charged with the gang-related murder of Mark “Papa” Guardado back on Sept. 2, 2008, during a scuffle in the San Francisco Mission district.
Witnesses said a fight broke out between the bikers during which Ablett stabbed Guardado four times – and then shot him twice.
According to Ablett’s testimony, the killing was done in self-defense, but jurors were not convinced and found the killing came as a result of Ablett’s desire to enhance his status with the Mongols.
Ablett is set to face sentencing on May 15 of this year.
