Detective Clark was shot and killed while attempting to arrest two robbery suspects. He and other detectives had received information that the robbery was going to take place and followed the suspects to the location. After the men robbed the pharmacy they exited the building and Detective Clark told them they were under arrest. One of the suspects immediately opened fire with a 9 mm handgun, striking Detective Clark in the head. Other officers returned fire, killing one of the suspects and apprehended the other. The suspect who was arrested was committed to the state hospital.
Detective Clark had been with the agency for 21 years and was survived by his wife and seven children.

Hi sweetheart, another birthday gone by. We all miss you and our thoughts and love have stayed with us through the years. The family has grown by leaps and bounds, our grandchildren and great grandchildren are beautiful, smart and a joy to behold. We have kept your memory alive and each child feels like they knew you. I cherish the memories of our time together, and they have sustained me through these long years apart. Until we bmeet again, I Love You
