Ex-con who threatened to kill NY, Philly cops pledged allegiance to ISIS

The NYPD put the entire force on alert Wednesday morning after an ex-con who allegedly pledged allegiance to ISIS threatened to kill a cop.

But Marcus Shelton, 36, surrendered hours later — unarmed and without incident — before he was carted off to court to answer two open warrants on parole violations. He hadn’t been charged with making a threat by Wednesday night.

“There is no belief that he was a threat to anyone,” a high-ranking police source with knowledge of the incident told the Daily News.

Shelton’s parole violations include an August 2015 arrest for pot possession and a pinch for bending a MetroCard to get free rides.

The man’s father said Shelton’s brother, Jason Paige, who died about a decade ago, was a Marine and a city cop. It was inconceivable that he could hurt a police officer, the dad said.

“I’m glad he turned himself in and that he’s cooperating with authorities,” Jason Paige, 72, told The Daily News at his home in Cortlandt Manor, N.Y.

Paige, who shares the same name as the son who died, said the siblings were very close.

“They got along very well,” he said. “It just doesn’t add up.”

The drama began Tuesday when an anonymous tipster called the 32nd Precinct detective squad, claiming Shelton was plotting to shoot a cop. Someone later called the Philadelphia police and said the same thing. One of the callers said Shelton pledged his allegiance to ISIS.

Philadelphia cops traced the call to an address in upper Manhattan and notified the NYPD.

The NYPD took it seriously, issuing an Officer Safety Alert across the department, according to Thomas Galati, chief of the NYPD Intelligence Bureau.

“We are taking it serious based on what happened in Philadelphia a couple of weeks ago,” Galati said of the threat.
