This photo from 2017 shows Wake Forest assistant coach Jamill Jones, second from left, with the team and head coach Danny Manning, second from right, during the second half of an NCAA college basketball game in Winston-Salem, N.C. Police say Jones threw a punch that killed a New York City tourist who knocked on his auto window thinking it was his Uber ride.

"The Jones family sends their deepest condolences and sympathies to the Szabo family".

Early Sunday morning in Queens, Sandor Szabo, 35, of Boca Raton, Florida, banged on the window of Jones' vehicle because he thought Jones was his Uber driver, authorities said.

Szabo fell back, hit his head on the pavement and lost consciousness, according to police.

According to NBC New York, Szabo had knocked on Jones' auto window, mistaking the vehicle for his Uber ride.

Wake Forest had no immediate comment, the AP reported. He was placed on life support and later died. He was kind, giving, loving and enjoyed life to the fullest.

He now coaches at Wake Forest University. "We will make a further statement after we learn more about the matter".

According to Jones's bio at Wake Forest's sports website, he is a Philadelphia native who attended Arkansas Tech and began his basketball coaching career in Washington, D.C., with an AAU squad named Team Takeover.

It's unclear why Jones was in New York City over the weekend.

Jones turned himself into police Thursday afternoon and was arraigned Thursday night at Queens County Criminal Court.
