WESTON, Fla. -

The suspect in a deadly gold chain robbery at a truck stop has turned himself in.

Police said surveillance video shows Ronnie Tyson, 20 pepper spraying a crowd while his accomplice Kenyatta Grant, 21, tries to steal a man's silver chain at the Seminole Truck Stop.

Tyson surrendered to police Monday.

Grant was arrested Saturday. She is charged with murder and is being held without bond.

According to the Broward Sheriff's Office, Kimberlyn Clarke died from injuries she suffered during the robbery.

It happened on Sept. 20 during Jamaican Night at the Cafe 27 on Griffin Road and U.S. 27 in Weston, just after 2 a.m.

BSO released surveillance video of Tyson. The video shows him inside a truck stop convenience store about two hours before the robbery. In it, he is wearing a 2012 Ralph Lauren t-shift with the American flag on the front.

Other surveillance video shows him unleashing pepper spray on a crowd. He is seen snatching a man's gold chain from his neck.

In the chaos, 28-year-old Clarke fell and hit her head on the rear bumper of a van. She never regained consciousness and died nine days later.

Police said they received multiple Crime Stoppers tips identifying Tyson.
