Man affiliated with Mongols motorcycle gang sentenced for role in fatal gunfight with Hells Angels

A Bakersfield man affiliated with the Mongols motorcycle gang was sentenced Friday in connection with a fatal gunfight that occurred between the gang and the rival Hells Angels gang last year.

Christopher Clay Wilson, 40, was sentenced to time served and three years' probation on an accessory charge to which he pleaded no contest in August. Other charges, including five counts of attempted murder, were dismissed.  

The charges stemmed from a fatal shooting that occurred in June at a motorcycle wash fundraiser organized by the local chapter of the Hells Angels in the 3200 block of Buck Owens Boulevard.

Wilson and other affiliates and members of the Mongols showed up at the event to confront the Hells Angels, according to police. One Mongol, Ricardo Viera, armed himself with a pump-action pistol grip shotgun and waited in a gas station parking lot.
