New York police officer makes amazing basketball shot

NEW YORK — A New York City Police Department officer showed he knows a little something about shooting a basketball.

A camera was rolling when he was standing outside of a basketball court in the Bronx and asked for a ball.

Officer James of the 50th precinct called his shot, then threw it up over a fence from the sidewalk. It went right in, just like he said it would.

“We aren’t kidding when we say our officers have skills!” NYPD said when it posted the video on Twitter on Friday.
