Jamill Jones, an assistant for Wake Forest men's basketball team, has been charged with assault in connection with a tourist's death in Long Island City, NY, according to the New York Post.

Police say Jones threw a punch that killed a New York City tourist who knocked on the assistant coach's vehicle window thinking it was his Uber ride.

The New York Post reported that Szabo, a native of Boca Raton, Fla., was visiting New York for his stepsister's wedding.

Wake Forest is coached by former National Basketball Association star Danny Manning. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the person was not allowed to speak publicly. Police say Jones drove away from the scene, and Szabo was transported to a hospital, where on Tuesday he died from his injuries.

Jones turned himself into police Thursday afternoon and was arraigned Thursday night at Queens County Criminal Court. He is awaiting arraignment on an assault charge.

In a statement, Wake Forest's athletic department said: "We have just been made aware of this matter and we are gathering information".

Szabo, also 35, was "super outgoing, friendly, and an incredibly smart businessman", his company, at What If Media Group, said. "He was fun to be with, interesting, and always interested". His family has said he was looking for his ride.
