WFU Assistant Basketball Coach Accused of Punching, Killing NYC Tourist

A Florida man who knocked on a New York City auto window because he apparently thought it was his Uber ride has died after the driver got out and punched him.

Jones turned himself in for the assault on Thursday morning.

Jamill Jones, 35, is accused of punching a tourist in the face, who later died. He died on Tuesday, police confirmed.

Wake Forest assistant coach Jamill Jones attacked Sandor Szabo around 1:15 a.m. Sunday in Queens, causing him to fall and hit his head on the sidewalk, police said.

Wake Forest basketball spokesman Steve Kirkland emailed a statement to The News & Observer Thursday night that said, "We have just been made aware of this matter and we are gathering information".

According to CBS News New York, the blow was so hard, Szabo fell backwards and hit his head on the concrete. Szabo had been treated for fractures to the left side of his face and the back of his head, and for bleeding on the brain, according to the complaint filed against Jones. He was ordered to return to court on October 2.

The investigation is ongoing, and charges against Jones could be upgraded, police said. He was previously an assistant coach at UCF, VCU and Florida Golf Coast University.

Jones is entering his second year on Demon Deacons' coach Danny Manning's staff.

Szabo was "super outgoing, friendly, and an incredibly smart businessman", his digital marketing company, What If Media Group, wrote in a Facebook post. "He was a really good person". His family said he was in town for his brother's wedding and trying to get a ride at the time of the incident.

"We're going to say one thing and that's all".
