A spokesman for the U.S. attorney's office here said a federal jury yesterday convicted Wayne Hogue, 47, also known as "Imam Wadir" and Shahdeed Bay, of selling the weapons and ammunition, including hollow-point bullets, between May 9, 2003, and March 23, 2004. Authorities identified Hogue as "an imam of the 52nd Street Mosque," for which an exact address was not provided, as well as a convicted felon, which prohibits him from possessing firearms. The nature of Hogue's previous conviction was not disclosed. Hogue could not immediately be reached. "Evidence at trial included numerous audiotapes of Hogue selling firearms to a confidential informant," according to Richard Manieri, spokesman for the U.S. attorney's office. Sentencing is set for December. The weapons included two Norinko 7.62 mm assault rifles - one loaded with 30 rounds; three Berettas; a disassembled 12- gauge shotgun with a 28-inch barrel; a Colt .45-caliber semi-automatic handgun with the serial numbers obliterated; a Phoenix Arms .25-caliber semi-automatic handgun Raven model with three live hollow-point rounds in the magazine, and an AR-15 .223-caliber rifle with sawed-off barrel, serial number removed. The case was investigated by a federal task force, which included the FBI and Philadelphia police.
