- A Wake Forest University assistant basketball coach accused of punching and killing a New York City tourist surrendered to police Thursday, according to NBC New York.

Jones turned himself in this morning.

Sandor Szabo died after he tapped on a auto window, mistaking it for his Uber ride, and was allegedly punched by the driver before hitting his head on the pavement in NY.

Szabo, also 35, was taken off life support Tuesday. The incident came after Szabo punched a resident who came outside amid the ruckus, according to The Post, which led Jones to act.

After he punched Szabo, police say Jones got into an SUV and drove away leaving the man on the pavement.

The Wake Forest Athletic Department released a statement that said: "We have just been made aware of this matter and we are gathering information".
