Parents of man killed by punch say condolences 'too late'

Wake Forest assistant men's basketball coach Jamill Jones was arrested in NY on suspicion of misdemeanor assault in an incident in which a 35-year-old man died.

Police say a college basketball coach threw a punch that killed a New York City tourist who knocked on his vehicle window thinking it was his Uber ride. Police confirmed to the AP that Szabo, who was visiting the city from Boca Raton, Florida, banged on the window of Jones's SUV while looking for his Uber ride after his stepsister's wedding. According to reports, he had left his brother's hotel room, possibly in a state of intoxication, and was banging on cars in search of an Uber ride he had ordered.

Jones was on Will Wade's staff during the 2015-2016 season before leaving for an assistant coaching job at Central Florida.

He now coaches at Wake Forest University.

Szabo's cause of death has not been released, but on Friday it was deemed a homicide, according to police.

Police say that Sandor Szabo, 35, was involved in the altercation around 1:15 a.m. Sunday morning near 41-10 29th Street in Queens. "Mr. Jones and his family, their deepest condolences go out to the Szabo family".

Wake Forest has not responded to the Daily News' request for comment. "We are going to miss him dearly".

Jones' attorney, Alain Massena, told CNN on Thursday night that Jones learned through social media on Tuesday that Szabo had been injured and police were seeking a suspect.

His employers described him on Facebook as "super outgoing, friendly, and an incredibly smart businessman". "He was a really good person". The incident came after Szabo punched a resident who came outside amid the ruckus, according to The Post, which led Jones to act.
