Louis Shenker Wanted To New York Police in Queens Mall Hoax Bomb
Police posted a picture of the hoax device, which you can see above.
Deputy Commissioner John Miller said in a press conference that police received a call at 7:38 a.m. on January 4 from the Queens Center Mall about a suspicious vehicle. He said that propane tanks and wires were protruding from the vehicle.
Police “began to tape off the area and evacuate the area around it,” he said, adding that the Fire Department also responded and assisted in evacuating a wide area.
Bomb squad members donned protective equipment and “assessed what appeared to be a possible explosive device.”
Miller said this was a “laborious and meticulous process that takes some time.” He said they eventually were able to “clear this vehicle and determine it was not an explosive device, although based on their expertise it appeared to be.”
The vehicle was “rendered safe, returning the mall and businesses back to their normal operations.”
Shenker’s Instagram page is now deleted, but he’s notorious for performing various anti-BLM actions. However, people have saved some of his posts and recirculated them on Twitter.

In the video above, he takes a blow torch to a poster of George Floyd, the man whose death in Minneapolis sparked protests and riots throughout the country.
In the video, Shenker says he was standing in a “Yiddish autonomous zone.” He referred to Floyd as Saint George in the video before torching a picture of him. “And there you have it,” he said, “This is the Minute Man broadcast.” He claimed in the video that his family was threatened. “I have a verse to read from the Good Book.” He then read from the Bible.
According to NBC News, Shenker was already accused of arson and arrested the week before the bomb hoax.
News4 reported via sources that Shenker “was arrested twice last week, once for allegedly burning a Black Lives Matter-related poster and the other for making a separate threat.”
Shenker’s Twitter page has been suspended.
