An inmate convicted of shooting at two Queens police officers more than a decade ago is back on the streets after he was accidentally released from a Manhattan prison, according to police sources.

Antonio Olmeda, 65, is wanted by US Marshals after he was wrongly discharged from the Metropolitan Detention Center on Wednesday, sources said.

Olmeda was sentenced to 20 years to life after he pleaded guilty in 2016 to first-degree attempted murder for trying to kill NYPD Officers Stephen Denisi and Matthew Ferrara as they patrolled Jackson Heights in 2011.

Olmeda made threats against judges and a US attorney after he was incarcerated, police sources said.
