California Briefing / SAN FRANCISCO

Slaying suspect turns himself in

October 07, 2008|From the Associated Press

Police say the man suspected of killing the leader of the San Francisco Hells Angels chapter has turned himself in.

San Francisco police say Christopher Ablett, 37, of Modesto, who was wanted in the slaying of Hells Angels leader Mark Guardado, 46, surrendered in Oklahoma on Saturday.

Police say Guardado was shot outside a San Francisco bar Sept. 2. Police have not said what the motive for the killing may have been.

They say Ablett was a member of the rival Mongols Motorcycle Club.

The Mongols and Hells Angels have a longstanding feud that erupted in an April 2002 fight at a casino in Nevada, resulting in three deaths.

Ablett is in custody and is awaiting extradition.
