College hoops coach threw punch killing NYC tourist

WINSTON-SALEM NC- FEBRUARY 24 Wake Forest assistant coach Jamill Jones during the Wake Forest Demon Deacons game versus the Notre Dame Fighting Irish

Jones allegedly punched the late tourist, identified as Sabor Szabo, early Sunday after he was being disruptive and banging on cars in Long Island City. Jones, said to have been parked in an SUV that Szabo knocked on, got out and punched him, after which Szabo was taken to a hospital, only to die of his injuries on Tuesday. Jones fled the scene inside a white SUV, according to the police report.

He's said to be "a rising college basketball coaching star" at Wake Forest University. He was released on his own recognizance and will return to court on October 2. Szabo, who was intoxicated at the time, hit his head on the pavement after the blow. A third-degree assault charge is a misdemeanor in NY.

Jones was with his family after the court session, his attorney, Alain Massena, told the AP. "We will make a further statement after we learn more about the matter".

The investigation is ongoing, and charges against Jones could be upgraded, police said.

Jones joined the Wake Forest basketball program in May 2017, according to the team's website.
