Bike Gang Member Gets 14 Years In Barroom Shooting


A member of a motorcycle gang who shot and killed an Arlington man during a barroom brawl last May was sentenced yesterday to 14 years in prison after pleading guilty to second-degree murder.

Michael Fraser, 34, also could face two additional years in prison because he was on parole for a Spokane manslaughter conviction, said Deputy Prosecutor Michael Downes.

Two co-defendants, Albert Stratton, 43, and William "Wick" Renner, 40, also were sentenced yesterday for their roles in the brawl during which Carl Stanley Shaw was shot twice in the back.

Both men pleaded guilty to second-degree assault. Renner received a six-month jail sentence, and Stratton received a four-month work-release sentence.

The three men apparently are members of the Ghost Riders motorcycle club, whose members started a fight May 10 at the Longhorn Saloon in Arlington. Shaw was shot when he stepped in to help an employee.
