Musician Wyclef Jean Recovering After Being Shot in the Hand in Haiti on the Eve of Presidential Election

Wyclef Jean Recovering After Being Shot in the Hand in Haiti

Wyclef Jean was shot in the hand in Haiti on Saturday and is now recovering, says his publicist. The former Fugees frontman was in his native for the presidential elections, assisting the campaign of musician Michel Martelly (he tried to run for president but was disqualified last August). CNN reports, “Jean suffered the wound soon after stepping out of his car to talk on his phone, according to Gerry Andre, his spokesman in Haiti.” Luckily the wound is superficial and Wyclef is “doing well.” It’s unknown who the shooter was and if Wyclef was the intended target.
