Broward Sheriff’s officials say that during the commotion, Clarke was overcome by the pepper spray, fell and hit her head on the rear bumper of a van

She was then transported to the hospital in critical condition and pronounced dead on Saturday.

Detectives are asking for help in identifying the suspect captured on the surveillance video.
